“Reflections of the Past in Modern Islamic Gardens”
D. Fairchild Ruggles, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will give a lecture on Islamic gardens from Spain to India, which were historically shaped by geometry, water, abstract ornament, color, and viewsheds, and how modern gardeners both reflect the past and offer reinterpretations of historic elements.
This event is held in conjunction with the Wondrous Worlds: Art and Islam Through Time and Place exhibition at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University.
