The Alice Austen House Museum will implement "Redefining the artist's Garden: The Landscape of Alice Austen's Studio," a project to showcase the importance of photographer Alice Austen's role in gardening society on Staten Island and its implications for Victorian women's social history. A group of scholars will advise the museum on contextualizing, expanding, and updating the museum's interpretation of Ms. Austen's use and documentation of the historically significant landscape surrounding her home, revise educational programming, and build community support for presentation of Austen's history through public park space.
