orchid at Indianapolis Museum of ArtA selection of 30 artworks from the Lilly Collection of Orchids in Watercolor are on display in the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis, Indiana, through July 9, 2017.

The orchid watercolors were collected by Josiah K. Lilly, son of the founder of Eli Lilly and Company and its president from 1898 until 1932. A wide spectrum of orchids, including cattleyas, oncidiums and paphiopediliums, are represented. Some of the orchids pictured were awarded honors by England’s Royal Horticultural Society.

“Orchids in Watercolor” is part of a larger celebration of the tropical flower at the IMA. Hundreds of orchids from around the world will be on display February 10 through March 5, 2017. New this year, the exhibition will extend through the Lilly House, using orchids as decor.

An accompanying Pop-Up Shop will be installed inside the main Museum building with orchid plants for sale.
