Dumbarton Oaks Part 2: A Tulip and Pansy Party and the Cloud Terrace

These colors are so vibrant and exciting! I love how the formal lines of the wall and fountain are contrasted by the party that's going on in the beds.

Next we all wondered, "What is that thing?" According to this Harvard publication,"Cloud Terrace, a new temporary installation by landscape artists Andy Cao (LF '11) and Xavier Perrot, recently opened at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C. Clouds sculpted from chicken wire dangle 10,000 loaned Swarovski crystals creating the effect of gathered raindrops over the property's Arbor Terrace."

Chicken wire and Swarovsky crystals! Artists are so cool.
