Romantic Gardens: Nature, Art and Landscape Design

The Morgan Library has what sounds like an outstanding exhibit called, "Romantic Gardens: Nature, Art and Landscape Design." The NY Times describes it as a "captivating, if geographically unbalanced, show" that "traces the Romantic movement from its first flowerings on English estates to American Transcendentalism in full bloom."  With works from artists like Alexander Pope and F. L. Olmsted, it could be the top show for landscape architects this summer. (Student admission is only $8, but admission is free on Fridays from 7 - 9 p.m.)
