Sacred Plants

Focusing on plants in our conservatory collection, the holiday exhibit explores how certain plants figure in myth, lore, and ritual for cultures around the world. This annual winter/holiday event also features seasonal flowers, decorated trees, kids activities, holiday items in the Garden Store, and more. Discounts in the Garden Store for Matthaei-Nichols members.

Running concurrently is our community art exhibit Body & Soul – How Nature Speaks through Art. In Body & Soul, plants and nature may symbolize or stand for something larger, mystical, or even divine, in all the meanings of those words. Community and regional artists show their interpretation of how nature tells a story through art about spirituality, mystery, or even the divine. While viewing, we ask the same question to you – how does nature inspire you? This exhibit features over 30 artists and multiple media are featured, including oil paintings, photographs, watercolor, and more. The exhibit is on display until January 7, 2018.

NOTE: Matthaei Botanical Gardens is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Open New Year’s day 10 am-4:30 pm

Winter hours at Matthaei: Thurs.-Tues: 10 am-4:30 pm; Wednesdays until 8 pm.
