Art lovers of all sorts are invited to attend Artful Gardens: Festival of Lights, the final installment of a new seasonal series at Powell Gardens. “Docent Donna” Houtteman of Art Blocks KC will help learners of all levels explore the connections between art and the natural world while drawing inspiration from Powell Gardens’ living museum.

This art-focused evening includes a 90-minute presentation showcasing artists that use light and seasonal themes for their inspiration and works of art. Afterwards, guests will enjoy wine, beer, and light snacks while receiving a private guided tour of the Conservatory as well as the current blooms on display at Powell Gardens.

This class is the perfect date night, solo exploration, or evening with friends. We invite you to answer the question: What came first, the garden or the artist?
