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

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. 

This exhibit will be on display until the end of December, 2015.
