Curator Valerie Smith seemed to have chosen works for "Down the Garden Path: The Artist's Garden After Modernism" not simply to illustrate a theme, but to enrich it. Fleshing out a well-installed selection of actual works, photographic documentation, and plans for unrealized projects with five new artists' gardens commissioned for Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Smith's exhibition proposed the garden as a model for human influence on the environment, while positioning it as a lens through which to view the diversification of artistic strategies since the 1960s.
