The Exquisite Garden Project

 "if you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea..."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery, from the Little Prince

The Bakersfield Museum is a very nice place, and we Gardeners, who lived there in a house for a week in 2010, and made incredible works of staggering genius during the day in the Museum, fell in love with the town, whose people are friendly as heck. There are some awesome old school Mexican cafes, an historic old HUGE Basque restaurant that we had a wild bunch of fun in, great junk resources , and very low, and at times very bouncy lowriders. Folks, the town is very underrated, and remember, some call it Nashville West, as legends like Merle Haggard hail from there. If that ain't enough to get you to go visit then forget about it. This installation we incorporated a soundtrack for the first time, and again, the initially shell-shocked Museum professionals slowly began to smile and enjoy themselves as they saw what the Gardeners wrought.
