From the Hands of the Makers

May 21 EDT

Regular museum admission rates apply.

From 1886 to 1936, Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka applied their artistic talents and knowledge of natural history to create an exquisite collection of glass models of plants to support the botanical education of Harvard students and the public.

This program will explore the history, conservation and relevance of the Glass Flowers in the twenty-first century, and introduce the publication The Glass Flowers: Marvels of Art and Science at Harvard, a compendium of new photographs that captures the beauty and magnificent detail of the models.

Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage

We encourage persons with disabilities to participate in programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation, please contact us in advance at lectures@hmsc.harvard.edu.
