Decorative Arts and Design Council Lecture: Gardens for a Beautiful America
Gardens for a Beautiful America, written by noted architecture and social historian Sam Watters and published in collaboration with the Library of Congress, presents Frances Benjamin Johnston's photographs of urban and suburban gardens. These colored lantern slides capture a lost world not seen since the 1930s. Mr. Watters's lecture will cover New York town-house yards, Long Island villas, California hillside terraces, and plantations of the South that he has identified after years of research and travel.
A book signing will preceed and follow the lecture.
