Passport Art

The Botanic Park’s Call for Artists contest was anonymously juried by Steamboat Creates and local artist Christine T. Roche’s oil painting “Enchanted Gardens” was the unanimous winner! Christine’s concept draws inspiration from the beauty of the rose-covered arbor nestled within Doris’ Arbor Garden. The painting will serve as the marketing artwork for Passport Through the Botanic Park and will be auctioned during Passport’s live auction.
