The American Society of Botanical Artists Visiting The Morton Arboretum

Next Friday, October 19, 2012, members of the ASBA will visit The Morton Arboretum as part of its 18th annual conference in Chicago.  Most of the activities for the conference, attended by hundreds of botanical artists and educators from all over the world, will take place at the Chicago Botanic Garden, but on Friday, volunteers from the Nature Artists’ Guild, along with liaison Suzanne Wegener, will welcome the members to The Morton Arboretum.  The visitors will be treated to a historical overview of Botanical Art by Rita Hassert and Arlene Widrevitz at the Sterling Morton Library, a tram tour, a lecture by Ed Hedborn, and a tour of the Herbarium by Dr. Andrew Hipp.

Welcome ASBA members!
