Natives for Your Yard: A Botanical Art Exhibit

Stop by the Phipps Garden Center in Mellon Park to see our latest botanical art exhibit, “Natives for Your Yard”, featuring plants native to southwestern Pennsylvania that you may recognize from your own backyard! This exhibit is a collaboration between Phipps’ Botanical Art and Illustration program and the Allegheny Highland Botanical Art Society, and features the work of Phipps students. "Natives for your Yard" will be at the Phipps Garden Center until May 18.

In the Phipps Flora Project program, students learn how to research and produce a beautiful and accurate botanical painting from start to finish. Unlike most programs, the Phipps Flora Project is a long-term course with guided open studios so that the students can master their work. For more information about Phipps' Art and Illustration program and other adult education offerings, please visit the Classes and Programs page or call 412/441-4442, ext. 3925.
