'Artists’ Books and the Natural World' exhibit
Just in time for spring, the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) presents "'Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower': Artists' Books and the Natural World," an exhibition examining the intersection between artistic and scientific interests in the natural world from the 16th century to the present. The show explores depictions of Britain's countryside and its native plant and animal life through more than 200 objects drawn primarily from the center’s collections, including traditional bound books, drawings, and prints, as well as experimental media incorporating cut paper, wood, stone, natural specimens, sound, video, and interactive multimedia. On view May 15–Aug. 10 at the YCBA (1080 Chapel St.), "Artists' Books and the Natural World" is free and open to the public.
