Woodland Spirits

New Outdoor Experience

On view September 29 – November 11, 2018

Drawing inspiration from literature’s countless dark forests, Woodland Spirits evokes mystery, adventure and uncertainty during the Halloween season.

As you explore WildWoods and Fernbank Forest, be prepared to encounter ghostly visitors in the shadows, up in the trees, deep in the vistas, and waiting in plain sight. Although mostly undisturbed throughout history, these woods feature clues and remnants from those who’ve come before us. Perhaps their spirits never left.

Woodland Spirits features a variety of ghostly figures imagined by Fernbank and transformed by Laura Lewis, an Atlanta artist who specializes in sculpture, painting and outdoor installations.

Cost: Included with Museum admission. Members FREE.
