From Celebrity Gardens to Disneyland: The Landscape Designs of Ruth Shellhorn
Presented by the Banyan Legacy Society
Enjoy a special afternoon reception as author and landscape architect, Kelly Comras, presents a slideshow on mid-century landscape architect, Ruth Shellhorn.
Shellhorn’s notable works include commissions by Walt Disney for the pedestrian plans and plantings of Disneyland park, park-like designs for Bullock’s department stores, and private gardens for celebrities including Spencer Tracy, Gene Autry, and Barbara Stanwyck.
We will share with you Shellhorn’s surprising connection to South Coast Botanic Garden’s Banyan Legacy Society, along with information on the Society and recognition of those who have already included the Garden in their estate plans. Afternoon dessert and coffee will be served.
