The Herb Garden

February 2021

Thibodaux, LA

The Herb Garden is a 20 foot tall, monumental stainless steel new media sculpture (LEDs, electronics, motion sensors, proprietary computer programming) created as a placemaker for the Chef John Folse Culinary Art School and its associated bistro at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA.

The Herb Garden is so named as it includes a range of expressionistic sculptural elements (containing thousands of LEDS) of herbs used to create the unique flavors in Louisiana cuisine: dill, chili, okra, sassafras, parsley. The sculpture is alive with colors and changing patterns, serving as a placemaker for Bistro Ruth and the culinary art school, so that passersby on the nearby road might be drawn to the site to see what the beautiful changing colorful patterns are all about.
