As featured in American Art Collector magazine, Green Currency: Plants in the Economy is an exciting visual exploration of the flowers, trees, fruits, and vegetables that suffuse every level of our global economy.
The Garden's first ever juried botanical art exhibition, Green Currency introduces you to the plants that make the world go round and to one of the fascinating disciplines offered by the Garden's Adult Education department.
An audio tour in the Gallery features stories about each of the 43 stunning works from the artists who created them.
After viewing the show, head out into the Garden grounds and see if you can spot some of the plants in their natural habitats, as indicated by signage.
