Check out this cool exhibit at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, by resident artist, Jean-Michel Othoniel: 

 "Secret Flower Sculptures will highlight his obsession with the hidden meanings of flowers, and his desire to capture their essence and beauty in sculpture, drawing, and photography."

"Secret Flower Sculptures will showcase bronze models and watercolor sketches made for the Versailles project, along with two new sculptures-Peony, the Knot of Shame (glass) and La Rose des Vents (gold aluminum)-one of which will be installed outdoors. Additionally, the artist has assembled his own very personal tour of the Gardner, drawing on connections and discoveries made during his residency."
