​​​'Natural Discourse: Artists, Architects, Scientists & Poets in the Garden' is an ongoing series of symposia, publications, and site-specific art installations that explores the connections between art, architecture, and science within the framework of botanical gardens and natural history museums. It began as a collaborative project between The University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley (UCBG) and a multi-disciplinary group of artists, writers, architects and researchers who were invited to spend time in UCBG’s extraordinary collection of plants, engage with the horticulturalists and develop new site specific work. The resulting works were on view within the garden's collection from July 2012 to January 2013. It continues in Southern California with events at the LA County Arboretum and Botanical Garden, the LA County Natural History Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Garden.
