The Garden is world-renowned for its herbarium, horticulture, research, library and rare books collection. The Garden also has amassed a wide-ranging historic art and archival collection that is not often seen by the public. The opening of the Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum offers the occasion to feature a special exhibition of some of the important paintings and works on paper amassed by Garden founder Henry Shaw and successive leaders of the Garden. These artworks include illustrations from historical botanical texts, paintings and prints highlighting the interpretation and symbolism of plants, and watercolors by highly regarded botanical artists documenting plant species around the world. Explore and enjoy these highlights of the undiscovered Garden collections.
