Flowers have reigned for centuries as the messengers of love, gratitude, remembrance, and friendship. Emily Dickenson often meaningfully referred to flowers and plants in her poetry.

The Language of Flowers is an exhibition of two-dimensional artwork inspired by the writings and poetry of Emily Dickinson and the meanings with which we have invested flowers since ancient times.
