Mary Katherine Jones- Wind, Waves, & Light

Hi everyone, special events intern here with one last blog post for the summer! You may have noticed if you have visited the Gardens lately or driven past on University, there are some cool sculptures! This year Reiman Gardens’ theme for 2018 is Movement and here we are lucky to have some wonderful installations from artist George Sherwood. I find the theme very fitting to the Gardens, especially when working in events. During my internship, I have mostly been on my feet most days helping set up and take down our events. Movement is just another part of my daily life! Any event we have had this summer the sculptures have still been the focal point. For example, this previous week for our RAGBRAI event we used the Wind Orchid sculpture on the south lawn to position food trucks around it for extra fun! The 2018 theme of Movement has only added to the beauty of Reiman Gardens and help connect to the natural world.
