A Man Named Pearl
(2006, 78 min)
Director: Scott Galloway
A Man Named Pearl is the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar, who transformed his three-and-a-half-acre garden in Bishopville, South Carolina, into a wonderland of beautiful and unusual abstract shapes. Fryar's garden has not only had a positive economic impact on his impoverished town, his artistry makes a simple and compelling statement about community, diversity, and love. This screening coincides with the exhibition Romantic Gardens: Nature, Art, and Landscape Design.
