May 19, 2016 – Over 500 people gathered on the University of Washington campus yesterday to celebrate starting construction on the New Burke Museum.
“The landscape of the New Burke is designed to be as multifaceted and welcoming as the museum,” said Shannon Nichol, GGN founding principal. “It will serve as a new campus quad, a colorful garden experience, and a living emblem of our state’s natural heritage.”
March 14, 2016 - This past fall, GGN oversaw the planting of 382,616 crocus corms at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The crocuses are now in bloom.
One of the Museum’s themes is “Hope and Optimism,” and the crocus field communicates this uplifting aspect of the Museum’s mission by being the first thing to bloom on the National Mall. Once established, these flowers should bloom annually during Black History Month.
