Join Dr. Brenda G. Jordan from the Asian Studies Center, University of Pittsburgh, for an exploration of the history and design of Japanese Gardens. Dr. Jordan will present an overview of the varieties of Japanese gardens through history, the concept of “Japanese garden” that spread outside of Japan, and give some suggestions for the types of plants and features that can be used for a Japanese garden in southwest Pennsylvania. She specializes in the history of Japanese art, particularly the paintings and woodblock prints of the 19th century. 

Meet our speaker, and enjoy light refreshments at a reception before the lecture.  A special thank you to the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania and to Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. for underwriting this lecture.
