Morning is an extraordinary time to see highlights of the living collections at the Arnold Arboretum. In August 2018, artist Fujiko Nakaya began her immersive fog sculpture installation at the Arboretum as part of the citywide exhibition, Fog x FLO: Fujiko Nakaya on the Emerald Necklace. The installation also heralds the coming of autumn, running through October 31.
Fog x Hill at the Arnold Arboretum creates a cloud of fog every half hour from dawn to dusk on the hillside next to the Hunnewell Building (main entrance gate, 125 Arborway). Local National Public Radio WBUR’s program The ARTery featured Fog x FLO in early August.
This particular specimen of Acer triflorum, the three-flowered maple, accessioned in 1977, is native to Korea and can be observed right at the curve of the paved accessibility path in front of The Hunnewell Building.
Be sure to visit throughout the Emerald Necklace in September and October for this rare opportunity to interact and connect with our urban landscape in new, enriching ways.
