Madison Flower Flash

June 4, 2021

Madison, WI

201 W. Mifflin St. 

The Madison Public Art Project commissioned the artist Molly Stentz, a floral artist and local flower grower, to create a flower installation partnering with the Madison Public Library. For this "Flower Flash" she curated a selection of Wisconsin-grown seasonal ephemerals. The project coincided with the library resuming community services and welcoming visitors back to the library. The seasonal flowers evoked a myriad of emotions and served to connect the human experience. Each letter of the exterior Madison Public Library signage wall was embellished with bouquets of bright pink peonies, pennycress, sweet William, spires of foxglove, and spirea branches nestled among white blossoms. The public art project celebrated Madison’s community resilience and vibrant spirit as our community emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic.
