Springtime at the Arboretum A Botanical & Landscape Watercolor Exhibition by CSUF Art Students
The Fullerton Arboretum is proud to present Springtime at the Arboretum:
A Botanical & Landscape Watercolor Exhibition by CSUF Art Students. This beautiful exhibition is done in collaboration with the California State University of Fullerton art department and Professor Lawrence Yun.
Each semester Professor Yun brings his watercolor class to the Fullerton Arboretum to draw inspiration from the plant collection and the beautiful scenes found only here at the Fullerton Arboretum and its 26 acres. This urban oasis provides an opportunity for the students to experience nature and to study its complex beauty. As you view the exhibition we hope you will enjoy seeing the arboretum and its amazing collection of plant species and landscapes through the eyes of these very talented students.
The exhibition will be open weekends, 11-3 beginning April 20th
and goes through Memorial Day weekend.
