A collaboration between Special Collections and the Campus Arboretum, this exhibit features a collection of scientific illustrations documenting the plants of the Joseph Wood Krutch Garden, the University's oldest garden and an inspiring model of a sustainable urban landscape.

Skillful scientific illustrators and artists from throughout the Southwestern United States created striking works that remind us of the lessons of the Krutch Garden, which are relevant for our times – inspiring connection with nature through the unique beauty of the Sonoran Desert and promoting conservation and stewardship of plant diversity in our desert cities.

These masterfully created original artworks are held at Special Collections. Additional materials from Special Collections relating to the historic Joseph Wood Krutch Garden are on display. Artists contributing to the exhibit include Pauline Savage, Chris Bondante, Joyce Peters, Diane Inman and Karen Gengle.
