V for Vegetables

Explore the victory gardening movement in this traveling exhibit.

Available from August 2020

V for Vegetables is a plug-and-play, bilingual exhibition featuring inspirational artworks celebrating the capacity of the everyday citizen to support their community (and themselves) in times of strife. Victory gardens—vegetable gardens designed to produce food instead of flowers—originated with wartime food efforts but continue to flourish through home gardens, farmers markets and more.

Explore the history of the victory gardening movement through seed catalogs from Denver Botanic Gardens' special collections, vintage posters and historical videos demonstrating the significance and scale of the victory garden effort. Offer your visitors a fun and relevant exhibit showcasing the delicious (and healthy) bounty that can be grown at home with an exhibition curated and organized by the Gardens.

  • 21 high-resolution digital image files of vintage posters and seed catalogs ready to print and display. (Object list available upon request.) Framed works available for an additional fee, pending availability.

  • Print-ready text panels and object labels in both English and Spanish.
  • Press kit including sample press release, three high-resolution images for press use and accompanying image credits.
