My Sunnylands: A Community Photo Show

In 2019, Sunnylands invited members of the public to share their original photographs that reflected their experiences at Sunnylands Center & Gardens. A variety of photographs were selected for a special pop-up exhibition originally intended to show in the gardens in May 2020, but due to COVID-19 mandates issued by state and local officials, Sunnylands took the “safer at home” approach and decided to celebrate these photographs online.
