Plath Exhibit Featured in the Daily Hampshire Gazette



Published April 24, 2024

A wonderful article was written in the Daily Hampshire Gazette featuring the Sylvia Plath exhibit, “The Bell Jars: Lyman Conservatory and Sylvia Plath’s Botanical Imagination,” in Lyman. The article provides insight into how this exhibit came together, as well as highlights the different components visitors can discover in the exhibit. 

“There are invitations to listen to her read her poetry, and we have a number of books and resources for people to just sort of really fully be involved in her writings,” said Sarah Loomis, the manager of education at the conservatory. “I love the ways that it crosses these disciplines, both for our audiences and our students but really broader visitors, saying, ‘Come into this place and think about plants and identity in these different ways.’ ”

The exhibit opened on September 15 and will be on display through June 28. If you haven’t seen it yet, now’s the time! 

Read the article. And then come to Lyman to explore the exhibit.
