WICKED PLANTS EXHIBITION
Description: Visitors will discover the evildoers of the plant world lurking in their own homes and backyards through Wicked Plants: The Exhibit.
Inspired by Amy Stewart’s best-selling book “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities,” this fun-filled, family-friendly traveling exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals. Two- and three-dimensional interactives fill a Victorian-era ramshackle home, where visitors travel from room to room and learn about some of Mother Nature’s most appalling plant creations.
Wicked Plants is designed to educate the general public about plants that are harmful to the human body and increase scientific literacy regarding the use of harmful plants and plant derivatives. Using an open- ended teaching method, this exhibit educates visitors — particularly school-age youth — about botany, health care and wellness, and demonstrates the actual biochemical, physical and neurological processes between plants and the human body.
Visitors will step into an eerie world where plants hold all the power. Showcasing more than 100 plants, this exhibit uses interactive displays to inform guests about plants associated with a myriad of health effects, including pain, addiction, obesity, allergies, cognitive impairment and even death. By incorporating history, storytelling and science, Wicked Plants provides visitors with a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.
Exhibition Size: Wicked Plants is recommended for spaces with 2,500 to 3,500 square feet.
