Goldsworthy Holocaust Memorial

Garden of Stones: A Holocaust Memorial by Andy Goldsworthy
The Garden of Stones symbolizes the tenacity of life, honoring both those who died in the Holocaust and those who survived. Created by famed environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy, the installation at Cornell Botanic Gardens is an extension of the Garden of Stones exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City. Three of the granite boulders are hollowed and contain a dwarf chestnut oak (Quercus prinoides), while the fourth rock is intact. The exhibit is on loan indefinitely from the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
