A Man Named Pearl.
Photography by Shadow Distribution.


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.
Friday, July 23, 2010, 7 p.m.

Films are free with museum admission. Tickets are available at the Admission Desk on the day of the screening. Advance reservations for Morgan Members only: 212.685.0008, ext. 560, or

Please call (212) 685-0008 ext. 560 or e-mail for information.
