The World of Orchids

Since her first year at Smith, STRIDE scholar Karen Yu ’16 has worked at the Botanic Garden with Manager of Education and Outreach Madelaine Zadik. Yu’s final STRIDE project features the classic botanic orchid illustrations of Florence Woolward (1854–1936) as they relate to the Botanic Garden’s massive orchid collection. The result, “Thesaurus Woolwardiae: Orchid Paintings by Florence Woolward,” is on display at the Botanic Garden through January 2015. Here Yu and Zadik talk about the exhibit.
