WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Dec. 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Ribbit The Exhibit

Featuring 23 Fanciful Frogs

January 11–May 31, 2020

(West Palm Beach, FL – December 12, 2019) Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden today announced a huge, eye-popping and family-friendly presentation – perfect for Leap Year!

Ribbit the Exhibit

January 11–May 31, 2020

Come to Mounts and see this enchanting cast of 23 whimsical, larger-than-life frog characters. Follow the exhibit guide to discover them in 17 locations throughout the Garden. Each frog has a name and a story; it's a fun and interactive experience for families to enjoy together.

The Ribbit sculptures are each 5 to 7 feet tall and handcrafted from copper, colored with natural patina with some secured to a solid stone tread, others sitting in chairs or on trees—all designed by artist J.A. Cobb. The delightful tableaux include a hoppy jazz trio, a meditating post-pollywog in Mounts' Windows on the Floating World, a jiving froggy Fred and Ginger, a coffee-sipping frog enjoying lakeside views, and so many more.

Hours & Admission for Ribbit the Exhibit

Daily – 10 am to 4 pm

Throughout the Garden

FREE for Mounts members; $15 for nonmembers; $8 for students and RAP members with ID; $5 for children 5 to 12

Tickets are available for purchase online at www.Mounts.org or at the Garden's main gate. The last entry and ticket sold each day will be at 3:30 pm.

For Mounts Botanical Garden, Ribbit the Exhibit is a natural follow-up to two recent eco-friendly exhibitions: Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea (2017-2018) and this year's popular Cutting Corners: A Stickwork Exhibition by Patrick Dougherty.

"All of our dynamic exhibitions use the power of art to draw attention to the environment, and the use of reclaimed or natural materials to produce monumental pieces that delight visitors of all ages, while having minimal impact on the environment," says Wolberg. "This exhibition presents an invaluable opportunity for the Garden to educate visitors of all ages about science, nature and the amazing diversity of wildlife, while adding the excitement of these larger-than-life sculptures. What better way to 'inspire and educate through nature,' as is our mission."

Note:

Ribbit the Exhibit replaces the previously announced Big Bugs presentation. Mounts Botanical Garden will be closed January 6-10 for the installation of Ribbit.
