Whitewashed Botany

October 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join Alexandria Douziech, founder of the Center for Plants & Culture, to see her new exhibit on botany’s “whitewashed” and exploitative legacy. This installation will focus on colonial injustices often excluded from plant displays: the forgotten figures of natural history, the cultural erasure of specimen collecting, and how plant commercialization benefited a select few. Viewers will also be encouraged to imagine a “decolonized” future for botanical spaces.


COVID-19 Information

Our space is well ventilated and the glass walls of the La Kretz Garden Pavilion will be open to further increase air circulation. Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that all attendees wear a mask during this event and to bring proof of vaccination with them. We are planning to record this event as well to make it available virtually after the event—details to follow.

RSVP / Tickets

This event is free, but seating is limited—RSVP required to reserve a seat.
