Botanica celebrates the origin of our Earth. The old world and the new, the creation mythology of various cultures, the fractal nature of flora, specific specimens and the healing properties of the plants that make our Earth unique. Under our feet, life is sprawling and forever blossoming at a pace and scale we may not notice at first glance. Flora is responsible for holding our land together, nourishing cultures, sustaining beauty, and each plant has a role in a very distinct ecosystem. In this exhibition, we embrace the origins, history, science, and culture of the Earth and it's ability to foster life, death, and everything in between. Botanica features new artwork by 125 artists, illustrators, designers, and photographers from around the world. This nature-inspired exhibition takes viewers on a journey through some of the most fragile ecosystems, mysterious organisms, and the beautiful growths that define our regions and cultural experiences.
