This juried exhibition featuring work from the Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration showcases playful, humorous and unusual depictions of plants—poetic license highly encouraged. Featuring a variety of media, these botanical illustrations are part of a well-established tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes while rendering the beauty of the flora around us. Included alongside this lighthearted theme are works by 2017 graduates and certificate students of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration.
