Gardens of the Jazz Age (Lukens Endowed Lecture) (Class is Full)
In this light-hearted, yet serious lecture, Jenny Rose Carey, Director of the Ambler Arboretum
at Temple University, and a member of the Garden Club of Philadelphia, investigates the
fascinating gardens of the Jazz Age. Using images from magazines, books and glass lantern slides
from the Archives of American Gardens at the Smithsonian, she weaves garden history, design,
social history and women’s history into a tale of the times. At its height in the 1920s, the Jazz
Age was known for music, dancing, liberation, and fun. Influences from Europe and America’s
own garden past combined to produce some of the most creative and opulent gardens in
American Garden History. Gardens, like art and music, reflect their time of creation.
