Artists’ Gardens in New England

Are you tired of the winter? Wishing for warmer weather so you can spend time outside? Join us for our traveling garden series!

Some of our most beloved painters, sculptors, and authors were inspired by the gardens they created. Visit the private havens of Edith Wharton, Julian Alden Weir, Childe Hassam, Daniel Chester French, Emily Dickinson, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Celia Thaxter, and others.

Please join us on this blistery February morning and explore the gardens where we can only hope these beloved artists spent their time creating among the beautiful greenery.
