Gallery Talk with Becky Jaffe @ UC Botanical Garden
Feb 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Gallery Talk with Becky Jaffe @ UC Botanical Garden | Berkeley | California | United States

Each plant has a story to tell. Each plant is not just a bundle of striving molecules like us, but a set of ideas-made-flesh, a library in bloom. In the exhibit The Book of Life: A Photographic Bibliography, Artist-in-Residence Becky Jaffe pairs her photographs of the UC Botanical Garden with books on ecology, evolutionary biology, and ethnobotany in a visual ode to Nature’s spellbinding storytelling. Join us for this special talk by the artist held in the Garden’s historic Julia Morgan Hall.
