Brown Bag Biology, "Art and Taxonomy: Rediscovering the Photography of L. H. Bailey"

The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum in South Haven will host its first Brown Bag Biology event of the summer, titled "Art and Taxonomy: Rediscovering the Photography of L. H. Bailey," this Friday, June 29, from 12:30-1:30. This event comes after the well-attended grand opening of the premier summer exhibit of Bailey's photography, "Through the Lens of L. H. Bailey." Liberty Hyde Bailey, South Haven's favorite son, was known for his many and diverse talents -- but few people know he was also an avid and talented photographer. Organizing this summer's premier exhibit, "Through the Lens of L. H. Bailey," has given the museum staff plenty of fresh insight into Bailey's photographic skills, as well as a deeper understanding of the man's science, aesthetics, and philosophy. Bring along a bag lunch and join the museum staff as they explore the themes of art and taxonomy through Bailey's unique and beautiful photography. This event is free and open to the public -- so bring a friend and meet under the museum's black walnut tree!
The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum is located at 903 South Bailey Avenue, South Haven.  Summer hours are 9:00-4:00. The museum and this program are free to the public. For more information, email, call (269) 637-3251, visit, or Like the museum on Facebook.
