A sculptural installation made entirely of cardboard, “The Garden: Real and Imagined” is the work of 16 high school art students who are strangers to one another, to the material they would use, and to the group process required to achieve their vision.

The show’s three-dimensional pieces include a tree-like image of Mother Nature, two arches for entering and leaving the imaginary garden space, a footbridge encased in vines, and a waterfall with butterflies, frogs, and swirling insects. The installation is featured at South Shore Art Center in Cohasset through July 14.

The students come from 12 towns, including Braintree, Norwood, Whitman, and Hanson, and were nominated for the center’s Art Stars program by their high school art teachers.
