A wonderful combination of art and architecture, botany and horticulture
Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012
Tonight on Kentucky Muse, meet the creative team at the Alexandria, Ky., based studio Applied Imagination, whose holiday and seasonal train displays meld botanical design and architecture, delighting crowds at botanical gardens across the United States. The programs airs at 9/8 pm on KET and Monday, Dec. 24 at 9/8 pm on KET2.
Founded by Paul Busse, Applied Imagination takes natural botanical materials and creates unique works of art. Each year, visitors clamor to visit the New York Botanical Gardens, where miniature trains weave among 149 structures depicting Big Apple landmarks designed and built by the firm, as well as to an equally popular annual event at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati.
This is just one of the many holiday programs we’ve planned this December — programs from both Kentucky and around the world! Enjoy them all (click here for a list) and happy holidays from KET.
