The Culture Gardens Go Deep 

When: Wed., Aug. 24 2011
For Rebecca McFarland, Cleveland's famed Cultural Gardens are more than just flowers and foliage. They are a living reminder of the city's ethnic heritage: a reflection of our identity and a comment on our communities. A trustee of the Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council, McFarland will discuss the gardens during a free talk tonight at the Independence Library. Originally planted during the depths of the Great Depression, the Cultural Gardens have attracted thousands of visitors from around the globe. Yet to most Clevelanders, the 36 gardens are just a blur of greenery along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. McFarland hopes to change that and to restore the gardens' status as one of the city's important cultural icons. Her presentation begins at 7 p.m.; registration for the free event is required via the library website. — Young 6361 Selig Dr., 216-447-0160, cuyahogalibrary.org.
