17 Apr 2020, Posted by Robin McGowan in Events, News, Press Releases

Do you know the name of this beautiful native Florida plant?
You will after joining the Chihiuly Collection Executive Director Andy Schlauch and Davis Byrkit of Wilcox Nursery and Landscape for this FREE virtual workshop – part of our celebration of World Creativity and Innovation Week.

Under the guidance of an informed and inspiring donor, the garden flanking the Chihuly Collection museum was designed exclusively with native species. Now, the garden is home to endangered Florida lizards, butterflies and bees. Learn how you can replicate this experiment in designing your own urban ecosystem – one small step can make a big footprint.

The Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, and My Favorite Art Place in Clearwater, have partnered to celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Week (WCIW). This global event began in 2001 and became a United Nations International Day of observance in 2017. WCIW is a worldwide community dedicated to using Creativity and Innovation to solve problems for the planet, in countries, states, cities, schools, the workplace and in personal lives. Beginning with Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday, April 15 and concluding on the eve of Earth Day, April 21st, people unite globally (48+ Countries are involved) to provide time, space, opportunity and skill building for people to generate new ideas and use the power of imagination to make a difference in many ways.
