Join us for a unique series of live readings set among Robert Irwin’s Central Garden, featuring poetic voices of Los Angeles. Each week words will float through the landscape, encouraging guests to create their own experience: Rest on a bench, lay on a blanket on the lawn, admire the view, or wander the pathways among the blooming spring plants as poetry vibrates through the air!
