Atelier: The Scent of Secret Gardens

Atelier offers guests an evening of intimate, intriguing, occasionally irreverent interactions with art and artists in the galleries and outdoor plaza. This season, India and the exhibition Puja and Piety: Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist Art from the Indian Subcontinent act as inspiration, embracing everything from Moghul to Modern, from Bombay to Bollywood.

Enjoy artist-designed interactive installations and activities, music and dance, exhibition-inspired arrangements by The Garden Club of Santa Barbara, the Raj Gin and Tonic Bar co-designed with The Good Lion, and hors d’oeuvres inspired by the region of Goa and city of Mumbai by Fire and Ice Events.

Artist-designed interactive installations include:

  • Snakes and Ladders: A Game of Dueling Dualities
  • Gotta Get Ganesha: The Elephant in the Room
  • Spice Market: Bag Your Blend
  • Sculpt your State of “Buddha-Mind”
