Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Spring exhibition opens today

17 March 2016

Join us today, 17 March, from 5 to 7 p.m. for the opening reception of our spring exhibition, Great Expectations. There is great expectation in the promise and energy held within a bud or a seed, and phases of this continuous cycle of plant development are beautifully illustrated with collection items. At 5:30 p.m. the curators will give an introduction to the exhibition. The reception is free and open to the public.
