Kickstarter: Game of Thorns!

Funded Backdrop

This fall, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden will unveil "Game of Thorns," an exhibition focused on the art and armaments of botanical warfare. Over the course of millennia, endless duels between native plants and their predators have given rise to the incredible thorns we see today. The exhibit will feature these living fortresses and will showcase the weaponry of California's great botanical "houses" that defend themselves with honor, chief among them: House Agave, House Cactaceae, House Legume, and House Rosa.

This project funded the creation of eight glass thorns - including one for each of the major houses. Each thorn measures 36" in height, is lofted off the ground and lit in spectacular fashion!

It is not too late to support this project! Help us make Game of Thorns legendary and inspire people to connect with their environment through art. Every additional $1,000 will allow us to create another thorn for the Garden's exhibition. Choose your side on the botanical battlefield! Join a house; sponsor a legend.
