Gardens of Earthly and Unearthly Delights

Exhibition Website

Sep 8 2017 - Jan 7 2018

A ubiquitous subject in art, the garden can embody natural and manmade beauty, provide a vehicle for exploring lush color and broad brushwork, suggest poetic atmosphere and mystery, and symbolize concepts ranging from virginal chasteness to sensual abandonment. Taking an expansive view of the garden theme, Gardens of Earthly and Unearthly Delights juxtaposes both historical and contemporary art and is composed entirely of works from the collection of the El Paso Museum of Art.
