Selby's Secret Garden

August 26, 2016 - November 27, 2016
For 12 weeks beginning in late August, the Payne Mansion’s Museum of Botany & the Arts will showcase the rare books and prints that are part of our library’s collection. The detail in the botanical imagery from works as old as the 18th century is stunning. The artistic display will be accompanied by another living plant display in the Conservatory, beginning in mid-October.
