Orchids: Glorious and Grand

Categories: Blog, Exhibits

January 6 – February 24, 2019


Built as a country estate in 1915, Filoli is recognized internationally for its horticultural excellence. During Filoli’s 2019 Winter Season, orchids will be the feature of lush floral displays and living arrangements, and unique species plants and cultivars will fill the Historic House and Greenhouse.

To complement the horticultural displays and floral arrangements in Filoli’s grand mansion, an exhibition in the Visitor and Education Center gallery will capture a larger-than-life view of this plant family through Orchids: Glorious and Grand. In this color photography exhibition featuring large prints, delicate details will be magnified to display the orchid flower’s glorious beauty and the grand function of its structure. The exhibition features photographs from Saxon Holt, Lynne Murrell, and A’na Sa’tara.

The exhibition will be open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
