The New York Academy of Medicine launched a social media campaign called #ColorOurCollections, where cultural institutions around the world are invited to create downloadable coloring sheets and books using items in their collections. The Oak Spring Garden Foundation has a rich library of rare books and manuscript items that have played important roles in the history of botanical art and science. We think this campaign is a great way to share some of our collection, connect people to the art of botanical illustration and promote creativity!
We invite you to download our coloring book from the New York Academy of Medicine's website here. Once you've created your colorful masterpiece, share it with us on social media with the hashtage #ColorOurCollections.
