Description:  The Wellness & Medicinal Plant Garden is a sculptural environment that speaks to the fields of pharmacy and pharmacognosy, the geography of Rhode Island and the context of URI. The Garden forms an entryway to the School of Pharmacy and is a visual statement that has the potential to permeate and subtly guide the School----an opportunity to artistically create an inspired space, where garden, sculpture and School interact and overlap to such an extent that they become integral to one another.
