Setting Up for The Dutch Connection

Posted by on Feb 07 2008 | Other, Photography

Today George Eastman House is being transformed into a tropical escape for the Museum’s annual exhibition The Dutch Connection: George Eastman’s Conservatory in Bloom. On view February 8-23, the exhibition features more than 2,000 tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, freesias, and amaryllis in vivid colors.

Below are installation shots of staff members hard at work.
