Smithsonian Gardens Intern Alan Marcus

Alan Marcus, an intern with the Smithsonian Gardens, recently wrote a piece for the Smithsonian Gardens blog about behind-the-scenes work of the new exhibit, “20th Annual Orchid Exhibition: Interlocking Science and Beauty.” This is a collaborative work between Smithsonian Gardens, the U.S. Botanic Garden and the National Museum of Natural History. The display looks at how new ideas, technologies, and inventions change the way we study, protect, and enjoy orchids.

Alan describes a day in the life of working on the exhibit with his piece, Behind the Orchids: Setting Up the Show.
