Krohn Conservatory

Krohn Conservatory – Cincinnati Ohio

I came to the Krohn Conservatory’s Butterflies of the Nile exhibit to view the butterflies, but I was drawn to the extraordinary sculptures from internationally acclaimed artist Dominic Benhura and other prominent Zimbabwean artists including Stanford Derere, Tutani Mugavasi, and Lovemore Bonjisi. Sculptures range in style from representational to the abstract with a variety of subject matter.

Inside the conservatory every where I looked there were sculptures of women that rbrought a feeling of peace and celebration.

Outside in the gardens were statues of graceful and stately fish and birds. And my favorite King & Queen Planters.
