Ganna Walska: Out of the Limelight and into the Garden

Tuesday, November 17, 2020
With endless energy and a lively intelligence, Madame Ganna Walska pursued a love of beauty, music, and self-realization. Her personal and professional commitments brought her in close contact with the cultural and social elite on two continents. Never comfortable with the role of socialite, she challenged women’s traditional roles, courageously living life on her own terms. Gladly stepping out of the limelight in the 1940s, Madame Walska devoted the remainder of her life developing the gardens of her Lotusland estate. Join Research Associate Rose Thomas for a presentation on the fascinating woman she has come to know through her work in the Lotusland archives.
