Between May 21, and August 21, 2011 visit the New York Botanical Gardens and be inspired by Spanish Paradise. Medieval Spanish garden design is not often seen or easy to learn about in New York, and related as it is to Roman villa, Persian, and Near Eastern garden design, this little-known subject is fascinating for everyone interested in the history of gardens and landscape architecture. This exhibition will explore the collaboration of sublime nature and dramatic design that created an earthly paradise. You can also read the displayed works of Federico García Lorca, enjoy flamenco, and discover the food and culture of Spain. Visit this extraordinary exhibit and bring a little inspiration to your garden here on Long Island.
The New York Times says Spanish Paradise: Gardens of the Alhambra invokes “the mythic imagery of the place and its hold on the imagination.
