Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation

Travel Exhibition

In order to share its expanding collection of contemporary botanical artworks with as broad a community as possible, the Institute administers a travel exhibition program. This program gives museums, universities, botanic gardens, arboreta and other interested organizations the opportunity to display in their own facilities the same fine botanical art and illustration that has been displayed in the Institute's gallery during its triennial International series of exhibitions.

15th International Travel Exhibition

The Hunt Institute established the International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration series in 1964 with the hope of supporting and encouraging contemporary botanical artists. Every three years, this series features the works of talented botanical artists from around the world. Organized from the artworks in the 15th International (2016) that now are part of the Institute's collection, this travel version features artworks by 38 artists who are citizens of 14 countries (Australia, Brazil, China, England, France, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, South Korea and the United States) and is available until September 2019.
