Orchid exhibit at the Huntington

"New exhibition explores the power of orchids through art and science"

A new exhibition entitled Orchids: A Natural Obsession will run from October 15 to January 1, 2006 in the MaryLou and George Boone Gallery at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens (San Marino, CA).

An article in La Canada Valley Sun states that the exhibition "is drawn exclusively from Huntington materials, in particular its outstanding collections of rare botanical books, many with glorious full-color illustrations. Works from the William Glikbarg Collection, amassed by the noted orchid collector and donated to The Huntington in 2002, comprise the core of the exhibition" and that "live orchids will complement the exhibit."
