Panel Discussion: A Garden for Solace
Thursday, July 30, 5:30 p.m.
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 Princeton University Art Museum for this panel discussion 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.
The event will include live closed captions in both English and Spanish. English captions are available directly in the Zoom toolbar, by clicking the “CC” icon. To access Spanish language captioning, enter the Zoom webinar, then open a separate web browser to visit https://www.streamtext.net/player?event=CFI-PrincetonUArtMuseum where you can select “Spanish” to see the live captioning.
