Orchids in the Mansion

January 30, 2021 – March 01, 2021

In late winter, Cheekwood will present its third annual Orchids in the Mansion exhibit. The Historic Mansion & Museum Loggia, with a view out to Swan Lawn, will feature a colorful and creative display of orchids and an array of tropical foliage—presenting a stylized interpretation of a classical orangery. The exquisite displays will continue into several historic rooms and galleries. These natural interventions offer visitors a warm, welcoming display of horticulture during the coldest month of the year.
