Plants Are Culture, Too


¡Plantásticas! Our Lives with Plants, a temporary exhibition at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, explores the myriad relationships between people and plants, with a special focus on Latinx and Indigenous perspectives.

Genre-Defying Art: Textiles and Maps


If you’re like most people and have never thought about textiles and maps at the same time, together, then you just might be the target audience for artist Linda Gass.

By choosing from a library of magnets, visitors to The Tools Are In Your Hands can decide where to place depictions of native species, agriculture, and the elements of the built environment.
