Art Historian Carol Moon Cardon Ph.D. will be the featured speaker on Tuesday, February 23 at 10 a.m. in the Picker Room of Camden Public Library. Her talk, entitled Creating an 18th Century Garden in Midcoast Maine, is part of Camden Garden Club’s Winter Horticulture Series.

Prior to relocating to Maine in 2000, she worked for a number of years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and in France as a professor, lecturer, interpreter and guide.
Her interest in gardeners and gardens of 18th century America, Britain, and France, have influenced plans for the 18th century colonial revival garden being installed on the grounds of the Henry Knox Museum.
