Florilegium Poster

CCA Gallery
March 8 – March 21, 2024

Projects from Cathy Barry’s Art & Design “Florilegium” course, in which students create a handmade book of drawings and paintings inspired by a semester-long investigation into wide-ranging topics relating to plants, art, design, and nature.

In developing their compendium, students draw inspiration from the ways artists engage with the shapes, life systems, and cultural meanings of plant life, while incorporating hands-on fieldwork, library research, and studio activity.
