On May 18 the American Society of Botanical Artists will be joined by botanical art societies around the world in celebration of a Worldwide Day of Botanical Art. A slide show of 1,000 botanical artworks will be on display at Filoli’s Visitor and Education Center from 2:00-5:00 pm. The slide show will feature original contemporary artwork from twenty five countries and six continents. The artwork was created by resident artists from each country who portrayed their homeland’s native plants. While enjoying the slide show, we invite you meet instructors and graduates of Filoli’s Botanical Art Certificate Program, who will create artwork as you watch. Extra pencils and paper will be available for guests who would like to explore their own talent for botanical art. This is a drop-in event. No registration is needed.
