Hellmann was inspired by previous versions of Alice in Wonderland, and aimed to represent the themes visually. She painted the book pictured above by giving the characters a life of their own and showing them coming off of the pages.
In the Wonderland: A Floral Fairy Tale exhibit you can expect to see huge flower displays, a hedgehog, live flamingos and other displays inspired by the classic storybook.
