Fernbank Museum will soon be debuting their new artistic outdoor exhibit — Forest Forms. The new exhibit will allow visitors to walk alongside 18 larger-than-life metal sculptures of flowers and animals along the nature trails in WildWoods.

Forest Forms will open at Fernbank Museum on June 29 and will run through September 29, 2024.

Ranging from 5-feet-tall to an impressive 20-feet-tall, artist Huelani Mei has brought her visions to life through impressive works that include a fox family, flowers, rabbits, a snake archway, a peacock, and more!

The towering artworks are made from powder-coated steel that depict a distinct line-work style, not unlike line drawings. Mei used the line-work style to show the form, movement, and rhythm she observes while enjoying outdoor activities.

Elements in the exhibit will be accompanied by fun fact signage that will help guests learn more about the plants and animals that inspired the artworks.

Mei has plenty of ties to Atlanta! She is a graduate of Georgia State University and runs her own metal fabrication shop in Atlanta called Hue Designs, where she works on private commissions and public art pieces.

“When you think of art exhibitions, you don’t typically think of Fernbank or natural history museums,” said Hannah Shannon, Director of Exhibitions. “But as art is an important part of STEAM learning, we’re excited for the sculpture exhibition, Forest Forms, to open. It will be a great way to experience nature and art together in our outdoor environment, WildWoods.”

Forest Forms will be included with General Admission at Fernbank Museum.
