Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Anderson named honorary curator

19 April 2023

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Francesca Anderson as honorary curator of art effective 11 April 2023. We have had a long relationship with Anderson from her inclusion in the 7th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration (1992) to her recent donations of artwork, which are featured in our current exhibition, What We Collect: Three Major Gifts. Given Anderson's incredible generosity and numerous contributions to our Art Department over the years, this courtesy appointment is but a small token of our appreciation and esteem. For more information, see the upcoming spring issue of our Bulletin. For more information about Anderson, see her Web site.
