Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Alphabetum Botanicum closing soon

3 December 2018

There are only two weeks left to see Alphabetum Botanicum. Stop by the Institute through 14 December to see this exhibition of Kandis Vermeer Phillips' illuminated letters paired with a botanical artwork from the Institute's collection to create a literal or amusing relationship between the two.
