The thriving garden culture of the early 20th century was a boon for women wanting to enter the workforce: Excluded from universities, green-thumbed gals leveraged their horticultural chops into careers as pro designers of residential gardens, college campuses and city parks. This exhibit salutes these fierce flower-loving femmes, as well as the women who documented their developments, with replicas and photographs of their creations. Special exihibit prices vary.
