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


Five Uneasy Pieces: Reworking the Treman Willow

Professor and artist Jack Elliott created three wood sculptures that were once part of a living heritage tree located in the F.R. Newman Arboretum, known as the Treman Weeping Willow.

Cyanotypes: Prints from the Sun

This exhibit compliments Laurie Snyder's botanical cyanotypes by revealing the history of cyanotype printing. Plantations’ founder Liberty Hyde Bailey catalogued much of his plant collections using Cyanotype prints. Some of Bailey’s prints are displayed as part of this exhibit. You can create your own cyanotype nature prints at home using a kit on sale in our gift shop.
