The Art of the Plant exhibition will be at the Canadian Museum of Nature, Stone Wall Gallery, Ottawa, from May 10th, 2018 to October 14th, 2018. It will coincide with the opening of the world-wide exhibition in May 2018 and be part of the online exhibition along with all the other participating countries.
The Canadian Museum of Nature is Canada’s national museum of natural history sciences. The museum provides evidence-based insights, inspiring experiences and meaningful engagement with nature’s past, present, and future. It achieves this through scientific research, a 14-million specimen collection, education programs, presentation of signature galleries and travelling exhibitions, and a dynamic website, nature.ca. The museum houses the National Herbarium of Canada, an astonishing public archive with more than 1.2 million preserved specimens of plants, lichens, and algae which documents Canada’s changing flora through time, from the 1700’s to the present day.
The world-wide online exhibition is being managed by the ASBA and will include all the participating countries’ paintings. In the meantime, the exhibition web site is featuring the participating countries and their national exhibition locations.
