Time with Paula Deitz
Paula Deitz, acclaimed arts and garden writer, Smith alum, and Editor of The Hudson Review, will visit Atlanta next month in conjunction with the High's upcoming exhibition, The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden. Known for her clear and vivid essays, Deitz is said to have the ability to transport readers across the globe, down garden paths from India to France. One collection of essays, Of Gardens, was published in 2010, and more recently she contributed to the catalogue accompanying the High's show.
Her free Atlanta talk, Time and Timelessness in the Tuileries Garden, will focus not just on the history of the storied public space but also on her personal experiences there as a student. If you want to save the date, it's Thursday, October 24, from 6 to 7 p.m.
BTW, even though I keep referring to the big fall show as the High's, it represents a collaborative effort of the Louvre, the Portland Art Museum, and the Toledo Museum of Art. In 2014 Tuileries will travel to Toledo and Portland (Oregon).
