Florist: [flawr-ist, flohr-, flor-] a person curious and skilled in the names, nature, and culture of flowers.

Pollen Index explores the relationship between botanical reproduction and human desire through the creation of a temporary florist shop. We welcome online or in shop orders for floral arrangements. Local artist Holly Schmidt creates arrangements based upon responses to a brief questionnaire. Orders can be picked up from the shop, which is located at the Charles H. Scott Gallery.
