Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


The Art Department organizes exhibitions featuring historical and contemporary works from the permanent collection or those on loan from artists, collectors or institutions, as well as a revolving sequence of International travel exhibitions for loan to museums, galleries and botanical gardens. In this section is information covering the entire history of our exhibition program, from our first informal installation in our then conference room when we opened in October 1961 to our current exhibition in our now gallery as well as those we have transformed into online exhibitions.
