Meaningful Beauty: The Vibrant Vocabulary of Honeysuckles
"Spring 2022 - Summer 2022"
The exhibition, Meaningful Beauty: The Vibrant Vocabulary of Honeysuckles, celebrates the diversity of honeysuckles, and explores how differences in form allow various species of the plant to effectively communicate with their environment. Through a blend of artistic and scientific imagery—including illustration, animation, photography, maps, and diagrams—the exhibition conveys key concepts in evolution and plant form. The exhibition further engages visitors of all ages through digital and interactive technology, including projection, kiosks, as well as extensive use of augmented reality to blend art with science and personalize the experience for each visitor.
Spring 2022 - Summer 2022
Collage and Words in Conversation is a superb definition of our current show in the Hunnnewell Visitor Center, Stoneroot Epistle. Poet Joyce Swagerty and her daughter, artist Daina Swagerty, collaborated to bring to the Arboretum this singular interpretation and articulation of the journey of a seed—an acorn—traveling though life.
