Session 1: Translating the Latin: Making Plant Science Accessible and Intelligible Through Effective Exhibitry

How can gardens use their collections to teach visitors about science in an engaging way? This presentation will examine how to create effective exhibitions using language that visitors of all ages and backgrounds can understand. Participants will learn how to “translate” a science-heavy passage for a typical garden visitor audience. They will learn the questions to ask when preparing an exhibition to see if it is engaging to the typical visitor through examination of other gardens’ science-themed exhibitions.

Session II: Why Art?  Three Perspectives on Art, Nature, and Public Engagement

Are public gardens just following their better-funded art museum sisters? Or is the new wave of art-related programming leading to greater public engagement with the issues that public gardens care about? Participants will gain an understanding of the possibilities for art to enrich and reinforce their garden’s mission, attracting new audiences and deepening visitors’ engagement. They will appreciate why and how this can occur, examples of innovative practice, and what leads to successful results. Can creativity lead to sustainability? Come to question. Stay to argue.
