Digging Deeper: A Scholar's Garden—Inspirations for Creating a Meadow Garden

Digging Deeper: A Scholar's Garden—Inspirations for Creating a Meadow Garden

Alexandra Munroe & Robert Rosenkranz Gardens

Sun, Jul 30 
4:00 PM

Alexandra Munroe is a scholar and curator who has lived and worked in Asia, Europe and America. She approaches gardens as an exhibition in space, a journey through a sequence of interlinked ideas, visions, and experiences. The centerpiece of her five-acre, ocean-side garden in East Hampton is a herbaceous meadow garden, now in its twentieth year. Alexandra has been inspired by references to meadows and wildflower motifs in medieval tapestries, Renaissance tableaux, Impressionist landscape painting, and in depictions of nature in Japanese art. She will discuss how art history, travel, and artists’ expressions of the natural world have shaped her approach to gardening, which she regards as the highest of all the arts.

Registration is required and space is limited.
