Join Dr. Brenda G. Jordan from the Asian Studies Center, University of Pittsburgh, for an exploration of the history and design of Japanese Gardens. Dr. Jordan will present an overview of the varieties of Japanese gardens through history, the concept of “Japanese garden” that spread outside of Japan, and give some suggestions for the types of plants and features that can be used for a Japanese garden in Southwest Pennsylvania. Dr. Jordan specializes in the history of Japanese art, particularly the paintings and woodblock prints of the 19th century. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided.
