RRLA, Inc. provided exhibit design services for the upcoming “Exposed: The Secret Life of Roots” exhibition at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. From The Architect of the Capitol’s website:

Plant roots are vital components of the earth’s ecosystem. They are necessary for plant growth, including the production of food and nutrients for humans and many other organisms. However, as root systems are out of sight, their beauty and importance often go unnoticed. This exhibit uses the work of Agricultural Ecologist Dr. Jerry Glover and photographer Jim Richardson to showcase the importance of roots through visually stunning root representations. Date: February 21 through October 31, 2015 Location: U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory – East Gallery The Conservatory is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, including all weekends and holidays, free of charge.
