The Door County Master Gardeners’ Association will dedicate the newly installed Garden Kaleidoscope in the entrance of The Garden Door on Saturday, May 17 at 1 pm. Refreshments will be served.
The interactive Garden Kaleidoscope is designed and created by Sturgeon Bay artist Robert Anderson. He calls his inventions “teleidoscopes” because they make kaleidoscopic images from objects placed in front of them instead of inside a tube. Anderson’s pieces are attractive sculptures – but looking through the lenses is breathtaking.
“The most exciting moment for me is when someone looks through the scope and a smile immediately lights their face,” Anderson says.
Anderson’s dynamic steel sculptures and garden kaleidoscope installations can be found throughout the United States and as far away as Japan, including numerous prestigious public gardens.
The Garden Door is a public garden created and maintained by the Door County Master Gardeners Association, Inc. in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin Peninsular Agricultural Research Station. Open seven days a week from dawn to dusk, it’s located on Hwy. 42 approximately one mile north of the intersection of Hwy 42 and 57 on the north side of Sturgeon Bay.
