You'll see how familiar artists such as Claude Monet and Frida Kahlo reflected the nature around them in their works. Explore contemporary installation artists' work that shape nature like Andy Goldsworthy and outsider artists like Howard Finster's Paradise Garden as well as Isaiah Zagar who spent years beautifying vacant lots into Magic Gardens.
