Bringing inspiring Bay Area artistic talent to the six acres of lush, natural landscapes at The Gardens at Heather Farm, our Artist in Residence program supports the creation of innovative and transformative artworks which inspire both artist and visitor to engage with the natural world.​ Now through July, artist Maureen McCourt showcases her colorful textile creations in and around the new Children’s Garden in a special exhibition entitled KNITTASTIC + POM! POM! galore.

KNITTASTIC is a knit bombing project meant to highlight the beauty of the Gardens. The magenta yarn wrapped around trees leads viewers through the garden landscape to the new and amazing Children’s Garden. Inside the Children’s Garden, viewers will find the eye-popping POM! POM! galore, a fun interactive installation that invites people to pet the sculptures and be dazzled by the rainbow colors!
