Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

Sarasota, FL

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens provides bayfront sanctuaries connecting people with air plants of the world, native nature, and its regional history. Established in 1973 by forward‐thinking women, Selby Gardens comprises the 15‐acre downtown Sarasota campus and the 30‐acre Historic Spanish Point campus in the Osprey area of Sarasota County. The downtown campus on Sarasota Bay is the only botanical garden in the world dedicated to the display and study of epiphytic orchids, bromeliads, gesneriads, and ferns, and other tropical plants. There is a significant focus on botany, horticulture, education, historical preservation, and the environment. The Historic Spanish Point campus is one of the largest preserves showcasing native Florida plants that is interpreted for and open to the public. It celebrates an archaeological record that encompasses approximately 5,000 years of Florida history. Selby Gardens is a Smithsonian Affiliate.

Bow Bridge was engaged in 2022 to promote Tiffany: The Pursuit of Beauty in Nature as the 2023 installment of the Goldstein Exhibition Series, to raise awareness of the Garden nationally and internationally and advise as communications counsel.
