Speaker: Ruth L. A. Stiff, Curator of International Exhibitions at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (London).
Home to more than half of the world’s estimated million species of plants, animals, and insects, the Amazonian rain forest supports a biodiversity unparalleled by any other region in the world. British artist Margaret Mee cataloged and illustrated Amazonian plants and flowers. Mee created scientifically accurate botanical documents of extraordinary beauty.
Join us for a talk by Ruth Stiff on Mee’s remarkable work. Stiff is the Curator of International Exhibitions at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (London). She is a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London and holds a Master of Arts from Dartmouth College.
