Gallery Talk: Garden Parties

May 25, 2017
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

The public garden as a site for leisure, recreation, and people-watching is a relatively new innovation. Urban planners, architects, and civic leaders advocated for more of these open spaces in the late nineteenth century, and artists responded accordingly. Join museum educator Annie Morse for a virtual walk in the park.
