Anthrobotanical: People, Plants, & Place Gallery Opening

September 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Most people know that we rely on plants for the food we eat and the air we breathe, but the interconnections between plants and people actually go much deeper and are more nuanced. Scientists continue to discover the complexities of how plants take in and respond to information, even communicating with each other through underground networks and chemical signals.  Human systems powerfully influence plant communities, locations, and health – and they also exert a powerful influence over us.  Yet, despite the intricacies of the plant-human relationship, plants are often overlooked, even compared to other aspects of the natural world.

Our fall gallery show features artists who explore the relationships between plants and people – join us for an opening reception celebrating our newest exhibition.

Artists in this exhibition include:
