Urban Earth Seminar - Hardscape Art with Bernhard Meck
Bernhard Meck thinks outside the box. His art, all at once practical and visionary, is difficult to categorize. Calling it “hardscape,” while largely accurate, does not do it justice. No slight to brick, block, and stone layers, but this is not that. Free form concrete and horticulture might be a little closer to the truth, but still, you won’t understand it until you’ve seen it. Come hear about the work Bernhard has done in landscapes all over the world and right here in Memphis. If you’ve visited the Memphis Zoo, Overton Park, or the Memphis Botanical Garden, you’ve likely seen and admired Bernhard’s work, but if you haven’t, this video should give you some sense of what he does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAbVLMPhYUI
