Discovering Natalie Hammond’s 1961 Garden and Envisioning its Future in 2021

This talk will introduce the garden designed by Natalie Hammond in 1961, based on the reports of visitors around its opening year. The distinct areas of the historic garden, with their symbolic stones, water features, and multi-colored plantings, will be compared to their current appearance. This research is an early stage of the 2021 Hammond Japanese Stroll Garden Revitalization Project and attendee questions and comments are welcome.

Dr. Lara Netting, who joined the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden Board in 2019, focuses her efforts on revitalizing the garden and making it a hub for Japanese garden professionals and enthusiasts in the Northeast. Dr. Netting is an adjunct professor at the City College of New York and UBC Okanagan, with a specialty in modern East Asian history. Her scholarship focuses on the history of Asian art collecting in twentieth-century North America.
