Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Happy New Year

6 January 2020

Welcome to another exciting year at Hunt Institute! We have an amazing exhibition, another thrilling volume of our Bulletin, another excellent issue of Huntia and new Web site content planned for 2020. We hope that you will join us.

If you are feeling nostalgic for 2019, you can get one last look at our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration. Due to upgrading the HVAC system in the Hunt Library building, we experienced several unplanned closures during the normal run of the exhibition. We are going to leave the show hanging in the gallery through 14 February. Because our hours of operation are occasionally subject to change (and we are not convinced the HVAC upgrade is truly finished), please call or email before your visit to confirm.
