The creation of art within Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offers a synergy where nature and art are intertwined. It captures the imagination of the human spirit, and ideally, we see our existence linked with nature. Lehr hopes to take the viewer into an exploratory journey capturing the spirit of the vulnerable enigma that lives amongst us.

Hudson Hills Press and Hard Press Editions announce the publication of MIRA LEHR: ARC OF NATURE, a five-decade overview of Lehr's expression of nature that emphasizes light, transparency and layering through a variety of media including gunpowder, fire and resin. Arts and cultural critic Eleanor Heartney analyzes Lehr's work, her background, the process involved in her artistry and her drive as a woman artist. The book features a 2014 interview conducted by art historian and critic Irving Sandler at Lehr's home in Miami Beach and a foreword by Thom Collins, Director of the Barnes Foundation. Lehr's own writing and reflections throughout the book reveal her metaphysical nature. A large format book, Mira Lehr: Arc of Nature features over 100 images of Lehr's art—compelling paintings, sculpture and video—in brilliant color.
