Garden design is largely considered a visual art, with landscape painting its closest relative. But, unlike paintings, gardens are not static. In reality they have more in common with music, where an ever-changing composition unfolds over time. Landscape designer and composer Larry Weaner will discuss how each of these art forms can inform the other to create more dynamic, legible, and evocative works of art.
