Earth as art
The Mosaïcultures Internationales Montréal (MIM) exhibit, hosted at the Montreal Botanical Garden, has invited countries from all over the world to submit the most awe-inspiring horticultural sculptures. 2013's theme, "Land of Hope," featured more than 50 sculptures from about 20 countries. 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.
