Theme:

How are the terms “art” and “gardens” generally connected? Are gardens “art”?
This question is asked throughout the lecture.

Variations:

  1. Artists’ Gardens
  2. Garden-making inspired by other arts through the centuries: architecture, painting, sculpture
  3. Art IN gardens: sculpture placed, site-generated, the site itself as sculpture
  4. Land and landscape art from then to now: garden art as self-expression, discovery, sharing
  5. Domestic versions, recycling for new vision
