Check out the current exhibit at the Sterling Morton Library – Flora! Illuminated. The exhibit “is a non-traditional alphabetical exploration of spectacular plant images from the Suzette Morton Davidson Special Collections of the Sterling Morton Library.”
The Library staff have created an on-line photo blog featuring artwork from the exhibit – http://florailluminated.wordpress.com/ Twenty-six pieces of art will be posted over 26 days. Today – Day 3 – is Chrysanthemum featuring a contemporary wood engraving and accompanied by a quote from P.G. Wodehouse:
Why don’t you get a haircut?
You look like a chrysanthemum!
