ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - An art exhibition that features nature-inspired works is opening this weekend at the University of Michigan’s Matthaei Botanical Gardens.

The Ann Arbor school says “Forest & Tree - A Multitude of Gifts” starts Saturday and runs through Jan. 3.

For the exhibition, nearly 70 artists will display works inspired by the forest, the trees or both. Works include a life-size bronze tree trunk created by University of Michigan Stamps School Professor Michael Rodemer and abstract paintings and photographs.

Students, staff and community members contributed to the exhibition.

“Forest & Tree” is part of the winter conservatory display “The Gift of Nature: Ten Plants that Changed the World.” The display, which features plants that have benefited humans throughout history, also includes a seasonal flower show in the conservatory.
