China announces Botanical Art Worldwide participation

China is joining the Botanical Art Worldwide project, and Beijing Botanical Garden will host the exhibition in its Education Center's exhibition hall. Beijing Botanical Garden is one of the top botanical gardens in China, and has had an active exhibition schedule devoted to botanical art. 

China's rich plant diversity and long history of drawing flowers and plants have contributed to its recent revival of botanical art. We are thrilled that China's fascinating flora and botanical artistry will be represented in this worldwide project to promote indigenous plants and their portrayal through botanical art. Serving as its steering committee are Linhai Zhang, PhD, Secretariat Director of the International Association of Botanic Gardens, and Dr. Kang Wang, Head of Education for the Beijing Botanical Garden. Please join us in welcoming China to the project!
