About Garden Dialogues

The program provides exclusive access to exceptional landscapes, where participants can learn first-hand from landscape architects, designers and their clients about the secrets to creating great gardens.

In 2017 we explored the relationship between artists and their own personal landscapes. Garden Dialogues 2017: Artists in Residence included architects, landscape architects, sculptors, painters, and other visual artists. The Dialogues were limited to no more than 30 people, to make them intimate, and lasted between 90 minutes and two hours, to make them relaxed. Each Dialogue was facilitated by expert landscape architects, architects, and artists – often pairing a site’s historian or curator with a contemporary artist or practitioner.  Destinations included Frederic Edwin Church's Olana, Russel Wright's Manitoga, Daniel Chester French's Chesterwood, along with parks such as Brooklyn Bridge Park, and private residential estates.

Garden Dialogues – luxuriate and be inspired.

Thanks to the generosity of our hosts and sponsors, tickets for Garden Dialogues are tax deductible and proceeds benefit the educational programs of The Cultural Landscape Foundation.

The 2017 Season has concluded and planning is underway for the 2018 Season.
