Philodendron Dome

By Laurie Spencer, artist, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Installed 1992 at the lower lake. 

Philodendron is a tropical American climbing plant that is widely grown as a greenhouse/indoor plant, which is fitting considering the dome is located by the Inasmuch Foundation Crystal Bridge Conservatory. The dome contains many huge leaves, with vines and roots climbing among the curved metal pieces forming the dome. The leaves resemble a Philodendron plant, except in size. 

Location

Moved to the Children’s Garden after 2011 renovation. 

Story Teller Chair

“Storyteller’s Chair” Sculpture: Oklahoma City artist, Don Narcomey, created this Sculpture with bois d’ arc wood (Osage Orange), an extremely hard and decay-resistant wood used in the past for fence posts and bows to shoot arrows. It is a magical addition to storytime in the Children’s Garden.

Location: Children’s Garden Porch
