Calling All Gardening Enthusiasts

February is not quite Spring, but almost. After cold, gray winter months have forced us indoors, most of us are looking forward to warm days, spring planting, and all things that bloom. In celebration of that theme, the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will host an event for avid gardeners and those of us who wish we were.

LRMA will present its 9th annual Garden Lecture at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, February 4, in the Museum’s American Gallery. The lecture is co-sponsored by the Laurel Garden Club, a member of The Garden Club of America.

The speaker for the event will be Dr. Jeff Kuehny of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Kuehny is a Professor of Horticulture at Louisiana State University. He has taught numerous horticulture classes and his research programs have included new plant introductions and sustainable landscape management. He is currently working on the implementation of a master plan for LSU’s Agricultural Department’s Burden Center. His lecture will focus on plants that can provide year-round enjoyment in any space – large or small.

The garden lecture will be followed by a brief question-and-answer period and then a luncheon at the historic Rogers-Green House located across the street from the Museum. Tickets for the event are $35 per person and include lunch. To purchase a ticket or for more information, call the Museum at 601.649.6374.

The Garden Lecture is just one of our many, exciting events at LRMA. Whether your passion is fine art, music, or gardening, there truly is something for everyone right here - at your museum.

Holly Green is Director of Marketing at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art.
