In the Garden Grows a Lump: Rare Books on the Picturesque

Taubman College Gallery (Rm 2106)
Art + Architecture Building

This exhibit ran from Jan. 25th through Feb. 28th.

The opening will follow the lecture by John Macarthur, University of Queensland.

“In the Garden Grows a Lump” is an exhibition and drawing colloquium organized around rare illustrated manuscripts on picturesque gardens. The basis of the project is a large collection of 18th and 19th century books on the picturesque held in the University of Michigan Library special collections, which are rarely available for public view. The exhibition includes 25 manuscripts and enlarged reproductions showing detail and technique. The exhibition is organized by Assistant Professor Andrew Holder, with Taubman College exhibitions director MaryAnn Wilkinson and Architecture Librarian Rebecca Price.

The exhibition has been generously supported by a grant from the University of Michigan Office of Research and the Guido A. Binda Lecture and Exhibition Fund.
