Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Willkommen! Bienvenue! Come on back!

6 September 2022

We're finally open to the public. We've resumed our normal hours as of 6 September. Next week in the gallery we'll have the travel show for our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration, which includes the 37 artworks now in our collection. Unfortunately, we won't be able to accommodate tours and talks at this time due to staff time constraints, but we hope to resume our normal program of activities next year. In another month or so things will be in place in our lobby and reading room for you to take a self-guided tour of our Institute history. In the meantime stop by to see the exhibition or just to say hello. We've missed you and are looking forward to seeing you!
