Exhibition Dates: 
Tuesday, May 25, 2021 to Sunday, Oct 10, 2021


A Rose By Any Other Name ImageUbiquitous throughout the history of art, plants and flowers are not merely means of decoration but also notable signifiers of meaning. From the laurel leaves of the ancient Mediterranean to medieval Christian iconography of roses and lilies, from the sacred lotus blossom of Hinduism to the art of Japanese flower arranging, floral and vegetal motifs are essential components of cultural expression. This exhibition juxtaposes depictions of flora spanning continents and historical periods and in a variety of media.
