Timelapse of Paula Hayes's <em>Roof Garden</em> installation

Tue, Oct 25, 2011

Created by landscape designer and artist Paula Hayes, Wexner Center Roof Garden is a new permanent outdoor installation that occupies a grassy berm that sits atop the center's Film/Video Theater, just south of the main entrance to the building and also near Maya Lin's Groundswell (a permanent site-specific installation commissioned as part of that artist's residency in 1993). Hayes's Wexner Center Roof Garden features hardy sedum plants, grasses, and perennial plantings whose appearance and character will vary and thrive throughout all four seasons and evolve over the years. It also includes several of Hayes's signature sculptural planters made of silicone. Footpaths will allow visitors to experience the garden close-up and to peer over the concrete wall onto Lin's Groundswell.

Check out the Wexner Center's fall exhibitions, one of which showcases new and existing work by Paula Hayes, through December 30.
