The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887-1920

Presentation by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

Monday, October 27th @ 2 PM

Focused on the period 1887-1920, The Artist's Garden presenation will explain the museum exhibition and catalogue that will tell the story of American Impressionist artists and the growing popularity of gardening as a middle-class leisure pursuit at the turn-of-the-20th-century, bringing together paintings, sculpture, books, and gardening ephemera. Among the artists whose works will be included are: Hugh Henry Breckinridge, Cecilia Beaux, William Merritt Chase, Charles C. Curran, Maria Oakey Dewing, Frederick Carl Frieseke, Daniel Garber, Philip Leslie Hale, Childe Hassam, Violet Oakley, Jane Peterson, Jessie Wilcox Smith, John H. Twachtman, Robert W. Vonnoh, and J. Alden Weir. The exhibition and publication will include representations of gardens across both the United States and Europe, with special emphasis on the importance of the Philadelphia area, which served as the originator of the Colonial Revival Garden movement with the Centennial Exhibition in 1876.  Moreover, the Philadelphia area was the center of the publishing industry in the early 20th century, which led to the creation of magazines aimed at middle class suburban gardeners like House and Garden (founded in 1901 in Philadelphia).  Philadelphia was also the city that founded the Garden Club of America in 1913.

The Reading Cafe Book Club

Each month we read and discuss a different international historical fiction novel. Come join the discussion!

This month we are reading and discussing Rooms by Lauren Oliver.

Thursday, October 30th @ 2 PM

Rooms is a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways.

Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb. The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results.

For half a century, beginning in the 1940s, Leonard Bernstein was one of the most charismatic presence on the American arts scene. This presentation is a portal to understanding one of America's most colossal, but enigmatic musicians. Karl Middleman, of the Philadelphia Classical Symphony, gives a conductor's perspective on what made Leonard Bernstein great. He also explores Bernstein's engagement with social issues and talks about Bernstein's time in Philadelphia at the Curtis Institute of Music. Video and audio recordings, as well as piano demonstrations, bring Bernstein's story to life.

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration required.

This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. 


This program is also made possible through a grant from the Haverford Township Civic Council.
