Breonna's Garden

"She who plants a garden, plants hope." In solidarity with Breonna Taylor's family, notable artist and curator Lady PheØnix developed Breonna’s Garden: a revolutionary framework for veneration through Augmented Reality. As a sacred space, the Garden is brimming with flowers, butterflies, and a few of Breonna’s favorite things. Now, for the first time in Virtual Reality, audiences are able to fully immerse themselves in Breonna’s Garden. Hear about Breonna from her family, those who knew her best: Ms Tamika Palmer, Ju’Niyah Palmer and Kenneth Walker. Breonna’s Garden honors the life and memory of Breonna Taylor while cultivating a safe healing space for anyone to plant a message of hope for Breonna’s family or a personal message in remembrance of someone they miss.
