Horticulture, scientific research, and art appreciation are connected by the portrayal of the beauty and diversity of plants. Historical and contemporary botanical art defines and delineates species and leads to an in-depth appreciation of the world of plants. Herbaria and public gardens provide resources that enhance the accuracy and artistic merit of the art. Botanical artist Bobbi Angell will discuss the relationship between art and science, highlighting her work as intertwined with a history of artists associated with the New York Botanical Garden and other institutions.
