Gardens, those plots of land that have been nurtured and formed by the human hand, have found appeal as places of solitary or group refuge, renewal, and enjoyment by societies across the globe and throughout history. Join us for this panel that examines gardens and garden culture
from a cross-cultural perspective, illuminating the high esteem bestowed on these constructed forms of nature. Zoe Kwok, associate curator of
Asian art, will discuss how the history of gardens and garden art in China illustrates a culture that has long embraced nature as an extension of self.
James Steward, Art Museum director, will discuss Gertrude Jekyll and the Arts and Crafts garden.
