The Garden Club of Hartford presents
The Garden Club of Hartford is sponsoring a free talk by Cynthia Brown, Horticulture Collections Management & Education Manager at the Smithsonian Institution, on A Visual Journey through the Smithsonian's Archives of American Gardens.
This lecture will highlight the collections at the Archives of American Gardens (AAG), which capture the stories of a wide variety of historic and contemporary gardens throughout the U.S. Descriptive records and images, ranging from historic glass magic lantern slides from the 1920s to digital TIFFs taken last month, help "preserve" over 7,000 gardens for researchers today and in the future.
AAG is a division of Smithsonian Gardens, which is responsible for the enchanting gardens surrounding the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall, in Washington, D.C.
