In 2019, Sunnylands invited members of the public to share their original photographs that reflected their experiences at Sunnylands Center & Gardens. Whether they were inspired by Sunnylands’ architecture, history, landscape, and even our garden inhabitants, we received dozens of entries on Instagram @Sunnylands using the hashtag #slphotoshow.
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.
Please enjoy the online gallery of selected photographs below. Click on each photograph to enlarge the photo.
