Flora Borinqueniana: Three Centuries of Botanical Illustrations

Implementation of a traveling exhibition on the history, science, and politics of botanical illustrations of Puerto Rican flora.

Para la Naturaleza (PLN), an operational unit of The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, seeks support in the amount of $290,750 from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Public Humanities Projects Program, for the Exhibition: Flora Borinqueniana: Three Centuries of Botanical Illustrations. This is an exhibition of traveling nature under the Implementation Category of the program. Through botanical illustrations, historic documents and objects from the 18th to the 20th centuries, the exhibition fuses art, history, science, politics, education and culture to explore how the story of the acquisition of knowledge and understanding about Puerto Rico’s natural surroundings informs the history of modern Puerto Rico as a whole.
