In this exhibit, original watercolors of Edward Peckham sit alongside matching specimens collected generations ago in Providence’s Cat Swamp Habitat. The samples, long archived in the Brown University Herbarium, showcase the biodiversity that once existed in the city’s Wayland and Blackstone neighborhoods and provoke questions about the consequences of environmental change. Exhibition Gallery, John Hay Library, 20 Prospect Street.
