The flower display is accompanied by an exhibition of mosaic artworks by Baltimore artist Yulia Hanansen. The themes of the mosaics vary from vast cosmic scenes of stars and galaxies to the earthly subject of flower portraits. The combination of fantasy and realism is characteristic to Hanansen’s work and complements the theme of the flower display. With the help of technology, science, and creative visualization, Hanansen creates images that are out of this world.
