Original eighteenth-century prints by German naturalist and
artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) as well as those by her
followers—including Carolus Linnaeus, Christiaan Sepp, and
others—are featured in this exhibition curated by Gettysburg
College students Emily Roush ’21 and Shannon Zeltmann ’21 under the direction of Prof. Felicia
Else and Prof. Kay Etheridge. These intricate, accurate, and compellingly beautiful compositions
reflect the artists’ and scientists’ extensive travels, dedication to scientific inquiry, and a
thorough, innovative understanding of ecological frameworks. This exhibition is made possible
by a generous gift by Bruce and Betsy Stefany and loans from Professor Kay Etheridge.
