If your travels take you to the Washington, D.C. area, make time for a Glenstone visit. If you’ve always intended to visit a museum in your own hometown or nearby, but never seem to find the time, don’t delay; treat yourself to a cultural experience. If you’ve not yet visited the Woodson Art Museum or haven’t visited recently, now is a perfect time to do so. The summer focus on “botanicals” includes multiple exhibitions on view through Sunday, August 25, and gardens abloom. Birds in Art, the Woodson’s flagship exhibition, launches its all-new 44th edition on Saturday, September 7, and remains on view through Sunday, December 1.

How many times have colorful blooms caught your eye and caused you to wonder “what is that flower?” During a recent trip to southwest Wisconsin, conspicuous purple flowers clustered along roadsides and woodland edges garnered attention and conversation. Visit the Museum often with friends and family to discover the many ways botanical art fosters connections between people and plants and deepens appreciation for beauty, creativity, and each other.
