OKLAHOMA CITY, June --, 2024 — Myriad Botanical Gardens presents the first art exhibit dedicated to Oklahoma pollinators, featuring works by 17 Oklahoma artists. "Wings & Wildflowers: A Celebration of Native Pollinators" is now open and runs through August 8 at the Crystal Bridge Art Gallery at the Myriad Botanical Gardens. The exhibit extends outdoors, with banners showcasing the artwork around Myriad Botanical Gardens and Scissortail Park. The outdoor exhibit will run through November 1.

Each piece in the exhibit highlights Oklahoma’s native pollinators, with each artist creating one piece depicting a pollinator and another portraying the flowers they pollinate. The exhibit aims to emphasize the crucial role of pollinator populations and raise awareness about their decline due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and introduced diseases.

An artists’ reception to celebrate the exhibition is Saturday, June 22, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

The art gallery in the Visitors Lobby of the Inasmuch Foundation Crystal Bridge Conservatory is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
