About Flora and Fauna Illustrata

The Flora and Fauna Illustrata collection is the Andersen Horticultural Library’s ongoing project to document all the species of plants, animals, insects, and fungi living at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum through scientifically accurate fine art. FFI is currently made up of over 90 juried two-dimensional works of art donated by over 30 different artists, many of whom are local. This exhibition features selected outstanding works from the collection, from aspens and butterflies to turtles and water lilies, as well as images from work in process.
