The Cape Cod Museum of Art will be having a Garden Celebration as they unveil twelve indigenous plant markers in a special ceremony at the Yasuna Denny Sculpture Garden on the Museum grounds on Thursday, June 3 at 4pm. The event is free, but pre-registration is requested. The markers, handcrafted by artist Kim Rumberger of Hyannis, include 3-dimensional bronze leaves and other representative vegetation from the native plants they mark, alongside the plant's common and scientific names.  The Bronze leaves are made from bronze metal clay, a medium composed of recycled powdered copper and tin in an organic plant-based binder. Each piece is sculpted and dried, and is fired in a kiln. After the binder burns off, solid bronze pieces remain. The plant marker project was funded through a grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, awarded in 2019. The installation was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Special guests at the celebration will include AFCC Executive Director Julie Wake, Horticulturalist Roberta Clark, CCMOA Director of Art Benton Jones, and CCMoA Trustees. To register, visit: www.ccmoa.org/events/garden-celebration The Cape Cod Museum of Art is located at 60 hope Lane, Dennis, MA. In conjunction with the unveiling, CCMoA will introduce a new line of jewelry made by Kim Rumberger, based on the plants represented on the markers, which will be available for sale in the Museum Shop. Proceeds from sales will benefit the Museum. About The Artist Kim is a local jewelry artist and has been a CCMoA instructor since 2014, where her original metal clay teaching experiences began.
