Support the New Mexico BioPark Society and the Botanic Garden through a beautiful mosaic art installation by Laura Robbins of Placitas, New Mexico.

The glass mosaic mural, located on the northern wall and banco of the Dragonfly Sanctuary Courtyard, is nestled in a shady, contemplative area perfect for quietly observing nature. The mural playfully depicts dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, spiders and grasshoppers, each fashioned out of numerous pieces of hand-cut glass.

On either side of the mosaic fused green glass ribbons, each bearing a donor or loved one’s name, is artfully placed on or next to whimsical clay flowers, cactus pads and leaves. These fused green glass ribbons are available for $1,000 each. Custom dragonfly artwork painted on your ribbon by the artist  is available for $5000. Leave a lasting impression that adds beauty to the Garden today!
