Medicinal Plants: Ancient Culture to Modern Medicine at The New York Botanical Garden

Planning for a multiformat traveling exhibition and public programs that explore how plants have shaped the trajectory of medicine throughout the world.

In Spring / Summer 2012, The New York Botanical Garden will present a Garden-wide, multi-element exhibit, entitled "Medicinal Plants: Ancient Culture to Modern Medicine," which will demonstrate how plants have shaped the trajectory of medicine from a historical, humanities-based, and cross-cultural perspective. The exhibition, sited throughout the Garden's 250-acre historic landscape, including the LuEsther T. Mertz Library, the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the Everett Childrens Adventure Garden, and the permanent collection, will examine the relationship between medicine, people, and culture. Public programs and interpretative materials will help visitors make the connection between plants and nature, and the impact, via medicine, that plants have in their lives.
