Dixon: Looking at Gardens with Charles Stick
Virginia based landscape architect Charles Stick, one of the country’s leading classicists, received his masters degree in landscape architecture from the University of Virginia. Looking at Gardens, based on an upcoming book by the same title, will provide an in depth and detailed view of the many ways in which historic precedent and classical design principles have formed the core of a nationally renowned practice of landscape architecture spanning over twenty years. The Phoebe Cook Lecture Series is co-sponsored by the Memphis Garden Club, a member of the Garden Club of America, and Dixon Gallery and Gardens. This series provides an opportunity to bring outstanding speakers in horticulture, conservation, and floriculture to Memphis. The series was established and endowed by the late Phoebe Cook Welsh in memory of her mother, Phoebe Cook. Gifts from Welsh’s family, the Memphis Garden Club, and friends in the Memphis community continue to fund the series.
Free with regular admission.
