Program Description

Event Details

Becoming a Gardener brings together Catie Marron’s experience of making her first garden with her study of great garden literature to better understand how becoming a gardener can enrich one's life.

Here, memoir, anecdotes and lessons learned blend seamlessly with accompanying photographs by William Abranowicz of Marron's growing garden, original watercolors from the firm All the Way to Paris, and works by artists such as Twombly, Klimt, Monet and Hilma of Klint to provide a glorious journey into what it fully means to be a gardener.   

Marron is the creator and editor of two anthologies on the value and significance of urban public spaces: City Squares: Eighteen Writers on the Spirit and Significance of Squares around the World, and City Parks: Public Places and Private Thoughts. She is a trustee and Chair Emeritus of The New York Public Library, where she was Chairman of the Board.  Marron is also a trustee of Friends of the High Line, where she was also Board Chair, and a trustee of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. She was previously an editor for Vogue.
