The Chat

Dear Friends,

With the start of winter upon us it is exciting to announce that Madoo has extended our season! In the garden we were delighted to host the Parrish Road Show this fall with Laurie Lambrecht’s site-specific installation Limn to Limb, October 5 through November 3. The renovation in 2016-17 of the summer house has allowed us to host exhibitions like the current Marina Adams: SongLines, on view through December 28.

Adams has recently been hailed in ArtForum as “…among the best abstract painters around.” This is just a sampling of the programs we are creating to reinvigorate the garden.

Our 25th anniversary as a public garden was quite a milestone for the conservancy marked by a dramatic increase in visitors and a new garden featuring a Cornus controversa ‘Variegata’, commonly known as the wedding cake tree.

Won’t you consider making a donation to Madoo or renewing your membership? Your past gifts have been much appreciated and are needed more than ever as Madoo increases its scope. Please use the enclosed form or visit

Thank you again for being a great friend to Madoo!

Alejandro Saralegui, Director
