Tower Hill Botanic Garden
Located outside of Worcester, MA Tower Hill is New England's first and only comprehensive botanic garden. The arrival of a new Executive Director had been a catalyst for defining organizational identity, priorities and programming. To support Tower Hill in considering new initiatives, Cecily Miller researched contemporary art programs at leading botanic gardens around the U.S. and compiled a report outlining the goals, exhibition design models, benefits, and challenges at gardens in Denver, CO, San Antonio, TX, Atlanta, GA, Clemson, SC and Nashville, TN.
Cecily currently serves on the Advisory Board. In this capacity, she recommended that Tower Hill commission a new work by Patrick Dougherty for its first major artist-in-residence project; Patrick will be starting his residency in August, 2016.
