About The Event

The garden has long been a beloved theme in art and literature: a site for solitary reverie as well as romantic love, a sanctuary from the pressures or urban life as well as a symbol of status and aspiration, a sacred space to meditate on mortality or the meaning of life, and a hideaway for transgression. Join CMA curator of drawings Heather Lemonedes as she discusses the way that artists and writers from the Renaissance to today have celebrated the garden.

Free with admission to the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
