South Coast Botanic Garden poster signing with artist Eric Ernest Johnson

Celebrate Earth Day by meeting artist Eric Ernest Johnson and receiving a free, signed copy of his “Through the Eyes of Artists” poster featuring the South Coast Botanic Garden.

Johnson’s poster depicts a whimsical bird’s-eye view of the botanic garden surrounded by waves amid the flourishing Palos Verdes Peninsula. In the artist’s words, “As a painter I have been exploring various points of view and the one I keep coming back to is the bird’s eye view. I am fascinated by the Los Angeles landscape, and see this city as a vast wide open dance of trees, buildings, waterways, roads, beaches and mountains. With a view from above, I can show all of this magic in my work and let the viewer explore.”

South Coast Botanic Garden
