Cleveland’s Cultural Gardens are a celebrated monument to the ethnic diversity of the city. Yet their history is embedded in other histories, some national, many international, and of course, the history of the landscape in which they exist. This presentation will examine the broader context of migration, immigration, war, peace, and ecology that has influenced their creation and history. It will also introduce a forthcoming book by John Grabowski and Lauren Pacini that examines this “landscape of diversity.”
