Press Packet:

Across the globe and from King to commoner, the garden has provided sustenance and pleasure throughout time in both corporeal and spiritual ways. As in Milton’s Paradise Lost or Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights to Monet’s Giverny or Thoreau’s Walden Pond, artists have portrayed the garden as an ever-evolving and fertile metaphor for life colored by contrasts. No matter its form, the garden protects and provides as much as it provokes and stimulates. In this time of anxiety and uncertainty, The Garden offers a much-needed refuge and heartening reprieve.
