This rare look at the largest American collection of contemporary botanical art comes to The New York Botanical Garden after showing at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh. The exhibition features 54 works of art from the private collection of Isaac M. Sutton and documents a wide variety of plant life in aesthetically stunning fashion. Botanicals: Environmental Expressions in Art seeks to emphasize the important role that the botanical artist plays in documenting rare and endangered plants as well as to convey the valuable contribution that common plants make to the planet’s biodiversity.

The exhibition includes artwork by instructors and alumni of the Botanical Garden’s renowned Botanical Art & Illustration Certificate program.
