This week I spent time finding the perfect exhibit for you to take a looks at this weekend!
Exhibition: Philodendron: From Pan-Latin Exotic to American Modern
When: Open House – Friday, October 16th, 2015
Where: Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL
In Philodendron, Central and South American flora are sprawling through out the exhibition. This show charts the migration of tropical plants from their native habitats to North American and European gardens and interiors.
Spanning three centuries and drawing together objects from the Amazon, Caribbean, and beyond, the survey explores this often-overlooked, Pan-American cultural exchange to deconstruct the “social lives” of the plants, from their influence on material culture to their impact on diverse fields ranging from the visual arts, architecture, film, and fashion to the agricultural, industrial, and medical sciences. You can read even more about the exhibithere.
I dare you to get inspired this weekend by such an exciting exhibit!
