Descanso Gardens was honored to participate in the 2014 edition of the AxS Festival (axsfestival.org). The AxS Festival’s theme Curiosity was chosen to coincide with the second anniversary of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory rover Curiosity’s mission to discover more about Mars. What would really electrify us Earthlings is if Curiosity turned up signs of life. And in our world, that means the presence of water. Signs of Life explores this theme of water as a life-giving necessity.
