Mini-Exhibit: Seeds in Disguise

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - Sunday, January 13, 2019

beads made from seeds

Mini-Exhibit: Seeds in Disguise, The Biology and Lore of Ornamental Seeds

November 17 to January 13

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; RBG Centre

Seeds are all around us: we eat them; we plant them; they parachute from dandelions; they catch in the dog’s coat or on your socks; they drop from the trees; and sometimes they even hang around your neck. This exhibition features ornamental seeds “disguised” as beads in jewellery, trinkets and ornaments.

Seeds, like people, have many interesting facets to their complex biology. Travel, chemistry, medicine, and industry are part of the stories of the ornamental seeds in this exhibition. Beware – some seeds are dangerous!

This exhibit was developed by the Royal Ontario Museum.

*Date restrictions: RBG closed December 25, 26 and January 1. Closing at 3 p.m. December 24 and 31.
