EXHIBIT: Art in the Arboretum
Opens June 25. Opening reception & tour: Tuesday, June 25, 5:30pm

This summer, in celebration of PHA’s 20th anniversary, we are hosting an outdoor art exhibit featuring works inspired by sights and scenes at the Arboretum. This exhibit will showcase unique perspectives on the Arboretum’s plants and landscapes featuring the artwork of Mary Alden, Leonard Hall, Lynn Hoeft, Laurie Howick, Peter Jochems, Dale Julier, Nancy Kingsley,  Kathy Kinsman, Melisande Knowles, Kasha Ritter, Carmen Torres Rodriguez, Beth Smith, and Katy Upson. The pieces were selected to represent different seasons, different plants, and varied styles and perspectives. Weatherproof copies of the original art will be displayed on the grounds where the piece was created.



EXHIBIT:  Dinosar Plants

A returning self-guided, family-friendly exhibit opening this fall at the Arboretum: a special map will guide visitors to plants with origins in the Triassic, Jurassic, or Cretaceous periods within the Mesozoic Era. While dinosaurs went extinct, plants persisted.
Check out ferns, the dawn redwood, monkey puzzle trees, gingko, and magnolia, which were all around at the time of the dinosaurs. Some plants have evolved, while others remain much the same as they were when dinosaurs munched on their leaves. Fossils, a timeline, and other interesting facts will be available at the PHA Visitor Center.
