Artist Member Exhibition

Monday, December 1, 2014

The classical gardens of China aspired to replicate the beauty exhibited in traditional Chinese landscape paintings. They are often referred to as “poetic gardens” and were designed to inspire creativity and act as a connector with nature. Beginning December 1 and throughout the month, an exhibition of photographs and paintings created by Lan Su’s Artist Members will be on display in the garden’s pavilions. Each art piece displayed has been inspired by the garden—many capture the magic of Lan Su itself.
