Sam Nester's 'Arcadia' installation will officially end December 20, 2021!

🎶🎍Arcadia, located in the Office of Sustainability's Presidents Park Greenhouse at GeorgeMasonUniversity's Fairfax Campus, is Murals at Mason's featured ELEMENTS installation and a fascinating piece of art from educator, performer, and artist Sam Nester.

🎶🎍This synesthetic art exhibit uses sensors to convert the natural, real-time bio-rhythms of Virginia's native plants into entrancing music and a beautiful light display that the plants control themselves!

📆The Arcadia installation launched in December 2020 and will be active until December 20, 2021!

🙌We are proud to highlight the support Sarah D'Alexander, Patriot Green Fund Program Manager, and Doni Nolan, Greenhouse and Gardens Program Manager, have provided to Arcadia!
