Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


16th International reception

14 October 2019

Join us Thursday, 17 October (6:00–8:00 p.m.) for the reception of our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration. At 6:30 p.m. in the gallery the curators will introduce the exhibition and the 16th International artists in attendance. The reception is free and open to the public.

In an effort to address hunger in Pittsburgh, the Hunt Institute has donated what we would have expended on refreshments instead to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Our modest donation will provide 7,500 meals to our less fortunate neighbors. This donation was made to honor the American Society of Botanical Artists on its 25th anniversary.
