Dangerous Beauty: Thorns, Spines and Prickles runs through 18 December. See this amazing exhibition before it is gone forever. Then do some holiday shopping at the Institute. Our exhibition catalogues and stationery items make excellent gifts. You may find the perfect solution to those thorny gift-giving decisions for the prickly botanical enthusiast on your shopping list. It may just be our free, spiny cactus poster.
