HAH Lecture:  Madoo, A History in Photographs: Celebrating 25 Years as a Public Garden

When: 02/10/2019, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

‘Change as a constant’ is a theme that defines the Madoo Conservancy, a garden notable for its design and plantsmanship. Over time, its creator Robert Dash added paths through meadows, water features and brightly painted hardscape to the property.  Madoo’s director, Alejandro Saralegui, will review the garden’s history via photographs taken by Robert Dash,Derek Fell, Mick Hales, Rameshwar Das, Hans Namuth, Erica Lennard, Rob Cardillo and Georgia Oetker.  The photos span installation to mature gardens, as well as views of the garden today.

Born and raised in Bronxville, NY, Alejandro started his career at the Metropolitan Museum of Art after receiving an undergraduate degree in art history from SUNY Purchase.  In addition to being the director of Madoo for over nine years, he is the gardens editor of NYC&G and the editor-at-large of Hamptons Cottages & Gardens.

The lecture will be followed by refreshments and a HAH seed exchange in the John LoGerfo Library located in the Bridgehampton Community House.

Hosted by the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons.  Visit HAHgarden.org or call 631-537-2223 for more details.
