Friday Photos: Zen Gardening

We have a great time each month with participants of Meaningful Moments, the DMA’s program for visitors with early stage dementia and their care partners. During last week’s program, Susan Morgan, Senior Manager of Therapeutic Horticulture at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, joined us to teach about the art of Zen gardens.

Our program began in the Asian art galleries discussing lotus flowers in various works of art. We ended in the European galleries talking about the influence of Eastern art on artists like Claude Monet. Back in the studio, everyone had the opportunity to create their own custom Zen garden while Susan told us about the symbolism of the nature elements and the ways to care for Japanese rock gardens. It was a relaxing experience for all!
