A primary goal of this initiative is to link people around the world to plants through contemporary botanical art. This project was initiated by the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) Botanical Art Worldwide Exhibition 2018. Countries participating in this event include: Australia; Bermuda; Brazil; Canada; Chile; Costa Rica; France; Germany; India; Italy; Ireland; Japan; the Netherlands; South Africa; New Zealand; Thailand; South Korea; the United Kingdom; and the United Sates of America.
The Art of the Plant Exhibition is Canada’s contribution to this simultaneous worldwide botanical art project. This exhibition opens in May 2018 in Ottawa and online in coordination with other participating countries around the globe.
