Plants in Print: The Age of Botanical Discovery
will be available as a traveling exhibit beginning January 2005.
The exhibition includes thirteen exhibit cases, book mounts, five free-standing interpretive wall panels, supporting materials, and a special and unique selection of rare books describing five centuries of plant exploration around the world.
In order to accommodate as many host-sites as possible, the exhibition will be made available for periods of two to four months at any given institution. Arrangements to host the exhibition must be made at least ten to twelve weeks in advance. However, to reserve a preferred time slot, it is best to make arrangements as early as possible.
