20,000 Snowdrops

Event / Artist Multiple
Calgary, Alberta, Fall 2014

Description

For the duration of Nuit Blanche Calgary, eight performers gave away 20,000 snowdrop bulbs to individual Calgary residents and community organizations.

Snowdrops are planted in the fall and are the first flowers to bloom at the end of winter. Since they naturalize well and spread readily the massive quantity of white flowers will create a dispersed urban snowdrop garden.

The flowers are expected to return every year, marking time and changing temperatures indefinitely.
