Gallery - US Botanic Garden Murals

Six Economic Plants: Cultural Portraits

The monumental series of six murals, 7×15 ft. each, was prepared for the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, DC. The artists used Keim Mineral Paints on concrete panels.

The project was commisioned to Robert Beckmann who spent about one year working in the research and design, and hired Yolly for the execution which lasted about one more year to complete. The entire project was done at Beckmann’s studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.
