Earth as art

The Mosaïcultures Internationales Montréal exhibit, hosted at the Montreal Botanical Garden, has invited countries from all over the world to submit the most awe-inspiring horticultural sculptures. This year's theme, "Land of Hope," features more than 50 sculptures from about 20 countries and runs through Sept. 29. Plus, it's not just for looks. It's essentially a horticultural arts Olympics (yep, there's actually a winner!) with a thread of environmental initiatives woven through every piece of art. Check out these 10 amazing sculptures that are winners in our book. (Text: Anna Norris)
