1. Dazzling Dogwoods: A Garden Art Exhibit has been on display in the UT Gardens since early summer.
Local artists donated their time to design a dogwood flower either 3 feet or 18 inches in size.
2. Now those flowers will be auctioned online.
The weather resistant dogwood sculptures will now be sold during the on-live auction. Bids may be entered from Aug. 31 to Sept. 10. Members of the UT Gardens may bid early from August 28-31.
3. All the sculptures can be seen at the Gardens.
All pieces are currently on display in the UT Gardens with exhibit guides available at the entrance kiosk, or they may be viewed on-line at tiny.utk.edu/DazzlingDogwoods.
4. Instructions for participating in the auction will be posted soon.
