Help the Garden Keep This Painting!

Garden Club – WPA

This life-size painting Garden Club – WPA was created by award-winning Norfolk artist Maizelle and has been showcased at the Chrysler Museum of Art. It is on loan and pays tribute to the 220 African American women and men, who, as part of a depression-era Works Progress Administration project, transformed swampland into the beautiful Garden we know today. The Garden is seeking donations to purchase the painting and make Norfolk Botanical Garden its home. As part of the Garden’s permanent art collection,  Garden Club – WPA  will continue to honor the Garden’s past and be on display for future generations to enjoy.
