Connecting More Than Dots With Cloud Tree Artist Brian David Johnson
“There’s an idea I’ve been exploring for the last few years,” says Brian David Johnson, “and maybe it’s a bit of a cliche, that we’re all part of one giant connected system and the universe is just this big blanket of energy.

When planning its 25th anniversary this year, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum decided to look inward.
