Tiger Glen Garden Report:
Marc Peter Keane's Tiger Glen Garden at the Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca, New York is completed. The garden is based on a painterly theme called "The Three Laughers of the Tiger Glen", an ancient Chinese parable that reflects on the idea that a narrow adherance to any one philosophy is contrary to true wisdom.
