In the lobby of the Nevin Welcome Center, works of art and plant-focused displays change throughout the year.


Les Papillons

Find enchantment in “Les Papillons,” a photographic look at butterflies amongst the floral backdrop of the tropics. This collection of photos by local photographer Jason Cox brings the vibrancy of life housed at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservancy here to the Finger Lakes. This art exhibit will be on display from July 6 to the end of August.

July - August


Peppers Around the World
To promote the ways you can explore the world of peppers at Plantations, we created the exhibit “Peppers Around the World.” This exhibit traces how cultivated peppers traveled from Central and South America to quickly make their way around the globe. A delectable display of pepper-based salsas, curries and pastes highlight how peppers are key ingredients of signature dishes worldwide. In addition to the exhibit, we planted dozens of varieties of peppers to explore in the vegetable garden and planned a line-up of pepper festivities including a cooking demonstration, lecture, tour and tasting and a family pepper party!
