Artist reception: Friday, September 14, 6-9
Flora and fauna is the world of living things. “Flora” designates plant life, and is also the Roman goddess of plants and flowers. In Roman mythology, Flora symbolized nature, flowers and fertility. Fauna was the Roman goddess of animals, wildlife, fertility and spring. Hence the word “Fauna” designates all animal life. What does Flora and Fauna mean in today’s world? How do you relate to nature in today’s technological environment?
