Drawings of the plant life of Arizona by the late Cora Estelle Cameron are on display in the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at Brigham Young University.
The exhibit, which will run through the end of February, consists of 36 framed drawings by the New York native, who moved to Arizona in 1925. Kay Thorne, assistant curator at the Bean Museum, said the sketches are being displayed in the science museum because of their accuracy in depicting the flora of Arizona.Cameron died in 1951. Her grandson, Dr. L. Cameron Mosher of Pleasant Grove, said the drawings had been stored in a suitcase until recently. He brought several of the works to the Bean Museum to be named, and the directors of the museum were impressed by the detail and accuracy of the drawings.
The exhibit is on the third floor of the museum, which is open Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
