Alphabetum Botanicum

When: Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 14

This exhibition features Kandis Vermeer Phillips' illuminated letters, which are intertwined with plants, mammals and insects. Each letter is paired with a botanical artwork from the Institute's collection to create a literal or amusing relationship between the two, such as the connection of ants with an aardvark and a peony bud, the sunflower as a food source for a cardinal or the similar shapes of a fox's tail and foxtail grass. Join us Thursday, 13 September, 5:00-7:00 p.m. for the opening reception.
