One of the planet's most important and beautiful resources—its trees—will be spotlighted in a traveling exhibition of contemporary botanical artworks, on view May 19-Aug. 27, 2018, at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA. "Out of the Woods: Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens" is organized by The New York Botanical Garden (where the exhibition is on view now through April 22) and the American Society of Botanical Artists. It is their third triennial exhibition.
"Out of the Woods" highlights the role public gardens and arboreta play in engaging visitors with trees and their ecological and utilitarian roles. It also underscores the conservation, research, and scholarship being undertaken by these public institutions.
