      The Artist in the Garden
    • Thursday, July 2, 2015
    • "The Artist in the Garden" explores the relationship between artists and nature from early in the 20th century to today. It begins with the close of the Progressive Era (around 1920), a time when industrial and urban development began to transform the landscape, and ends with recent work by living artists. The exhibition represents a broad array of stylistic and aesthetic responses to nature and the garden within the context of larger social and environmental changes.
