The Lloyd Library & Museum and Meddling with Nature have partnered on an exhibition now at the Lloyd entitled "Off the Page,” which brings the 300-year-old work of botanical illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian back to life. The exhibition features 3-dimensional recreations of Merian’s illustrations, using preserved plant, animal, and insect specimens.

Off the Page is the title of a new exhibit at the Lloyd Library of the works of Maria Sibylla Merian who discovered the theory of metamorphoses 150 years before Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
