Drawing Matters explores the importance of drawing by hand in the current technological age where computer-aided design and photographic replication are so accessible. Cross-discipline by design, the exhibition includes drawings from the Museum’s collection, botanical and scientific illustrations, and engineering and architectural drawings. The Museum’s drawings range from the 18th to the 21st centuries and include a wide variety of styles from representational to abstract. The scientific illustrations will include taxonomic descriptions of species and how they are used in research and publication. Engineering and architectural sketches will be shown along with detailed plans, models, and/or photographs of completed projects.

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.

Admission is free.
