Philadelphia Flower Show: Urban Graffiti Shadow Art by Michael Bruce

We’re intoxicated with the Philadelphia International Flower Show this week and have a mini-series on Green Philly Blog about lectures and more! Our journey with fresh floral smells continues today…

As I mentioned in my Philadelphia Flower Show Preview, the Urban Graffiti Shadow Art by Michael Bruce Florist in Collingswood, NJ, may be one of my favorite exhibits.  The spotlights and area is a lot to take in.  When you first approach the scene, the miscellaneous items throw you off:

And then you see trash compiled together to sort of make an image:

But when you take another step back, you can see the shadow art, a perfect image of a woman walking her poodle:

Other images include a can can dancer:

as well as a woman in a bath tub and a garden scene with a cat going after some birds.  This is a beautiful result for what is “one man’s trash…”

Did you check out this exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show? What did you think?
