Elaine Mehalakes and Kristina Jones: GLOBAL FLORA

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 - 11:30am

Inquiry welcomes Davis Museum Curator ELAINE MEHALAKES  and Wellesley College Botanic Gardens Director KRISTINA JONES to talk about the exhibition GLOBAL FLORA: BOTANICAL IMAGERY AND EXPLORATION. This unique exhibition links the history of botanical imagery with the adventure of exploration and the effects of globalization has on our our contemporary world and the plants we see in our gardens. This exhibition is on view at the DAVIS MUSEUM AT WELLESLEY COLLEGE till January 15, 2012. But, this is not just an exhibition of fine artistic prints. There is also a companion show in the college’s Botanic Visitor’s Center of some of the actual plants featured in the prints. Tune in and learn about the Victorian rhodedendron craze; the largest flower in the world that unfortunately smells like rotting meat to attract its polinators,  and the unusal flower that only blooms once a year…at night.
