Spring Lecture Series focuses on Trans Plants: Collecting, Gathering, and Globalizing Plants. Consider plants in and out of their native environment, and how plants become an art material in bonsai and Chinese gardens. Hear stories of a delicious mushroom that only grows in the wild, farming eucalyptus as a colonial endeavor, and a hunt for rhododendrons in China. See schedule of lectures below. Lectures take place at the Seattle Art Museum located in downtown Seattle. South Hall doors open at 9:30 AM. Please arrive 10 minutes before the program starts, as seating is first-come, first-served. Tickets: Individual lecture available at the door: $11, SAM members $6.
