The Spirit Poles at SF Botanical Garden

BAG member Victoria Rabinowe has installed 100 painted aspen poles that tower above and around you as you meander through the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. Some are painted black and white; some are bright and colorful; some are inscribed with cryptic calligraphy. Each pole is a provocative and unique totem inspired by Victoria’s dreams. This illuminated garden encourages the viewer to drift off into a spiritual journey that connects us with the deep, communal roots of aboriginal ancestry that we all share.

Link to the Santa Fe Botanical Garden: The annual Glow—Cosmic Lights event is December 14-31 (closed December 24 and 25). Victoria says there is a special event on the evening of December 28 with musicians Half Broke Horses.
