Together with Prof. Ursula Schuch from the School of Plant Sciences and Olivia Miller from the University of Arizona Museum of Art, Prof. Joela Jacobs has co-curated an exhibit called Botanical Relations that runs from January 26 to March 31, 2019. Drawn from various collections at The University of Arizona, Botanical Relations explores the nature of plant life both above and below the ground. The exhibition investigates concepts of the individuality of plants, vegetal eroticism, and vegetal violence. Some of the objects reflect scientific accuracy while others are reinterpreted through the artist’s imagination.

Join us for the opening talk with Dr. Jacobs and the welcoming reception on February 14, 2019 at 4pm (reception at 5pm) at the UAMA. On March 31st, the exhibit will close with an artist talk featuring Barbara Rogers at 2pm (UAMA). These events are co-sponsored by a College of Humanities Faculty Research grant.
