Historic Orchard Street, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, was once a literal orchard and garden belonging to James De Lancey during the Revolutionary War. By the mid 1800s the property was divided up, making way for immigrant housing, pushcarts and storefront businesses. Gardens on Orchard looks back at the origins of the street as a productive outdoor space and captures the streets’ history, energy and spirit.
Gardens on Orchard at Lesley Heller brings viewers back in time to Orchard Street as a garden space, presenting a group show of garden and outdoor themed works spanning painting, sculpture and photography.
