Description: Professor Sahar Bazzaz of the History Department, College of the Holy Cross, will give a gallery talk, 'Greenhouses as Colonial 'Kunstkammer': Plants, Science and Empire', in conjunction with the exhibition Warm Room: Photographs by Peter A. Moriarty from Historic Greenhouses. Moriarty's works explore the architecture and collections of a series of historic European and American greenhouses. Taken over the course of more than 20 years, Moriartys evocative works explore the interactions of familiar architectural forms with the lush, exotic, organic, and often disorienting collections housed within.
