GARFIELD PARK CONSERVATORY is located within the 136 acre Garfield Park, on Indianapolis’ near south side. The facility is open to the public and offers workshops, gardening demonstrations, youth education and guest lecturers on horticulture and landscaping. The conservatory features special exhibits throughout the year, including holiday poinsettias, orchids and the spring bulb show!
The original conservatory was designed and constructed in 1914 by the extremely well respected German landscape architect George Edward Kessler. The original conservatory complex consisted of a palm house, two show houses, two plant houses, a propagating house and a service building.
In college the park approached our teacher with an opportunity to design a logo for the park. There weren’t very many restrictions on when we could do but I thought they would like something simple and elegant. While my design was not chose, I am not sure if they went with any of them to tell you the truth, but I liked it a lot so it was in my portfolio for awhile.
