The LuEsther T. Mertz Library, founded in 1899, is the largest, most comprehensive botanical library in the Americas. It is also a treasury of centuries of knowledge about plants and related topics.

The Mertz Library Exhibition Program is the primary vehicle for displaying and discussing the many remarkable holdings of rare books, historic artifacts, archival documents, and artworks housed in the collections of the LuEsther T. Mertz Library. The Rondina and LoFaro Gallery has also borrowed important objects for past exhibitions from institutions, including Yale University (a Monet painting); Cambridge University (Darwin’s letters and notebooks); the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Japanese art, lacquers, and woodcut prints); the Morgan Library (paintings); Harvard University (Emily Dickinson’s letters and poems); the Oak Spring Garden Library (paintings, rare books, and mss.); and the American Museum of Natural History (rare books and mss.), among others.

Learn more about our past exhibitions from the Past Exhibitions drop-down menu above.
