Ellen Shipman and the American Garden

Date: Monday, May 17, 6:30pm on Zoom

From the 1910s through the 1940s, Ellen Shipman (1869-1950) designed over 600 gardens, from New England and Long Island to the Midwest and the South. Her secluded, lush formal gardens attracted a clientele that included the Fords, Edisons, duPonts, and other prominent names. Historian Judith B. Tankard will explore Shipman’s unique style and her renown as a landscape architect.
