The Sower Alcove
"The world before us,
The world after us,
Our actions foretell
We reap what we sow" ..

At seven feet tall, this classic male figure captivates the viewer with its height, strong gaze and form. " The Sower celebrates the Garden's historic relationship with the Art Institute while acknowledging the Garden's dedication to spreading the seeds of learning about plants and the natural world.
