On 3 April 2018 The Associated Press reported:
Just in time for spring, a section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art [in New York City)] has been transformed into a sort of 19th century palm garden encircled by colorful galleries featuring still lifes, landscapes, and other works -- complete with Parisian-style signage and park benches -- that trace the history of French parks and gardens.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of culture and environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
... It reveals what happened after the French Revolution, when the nation's many royal gardens and hunting grounds were opened to the public. Suddenly, Paris was transformed from a warren of alleyways to a city of tree-lined boulevards, parks, and public green spaces. These became open-air salons for city dwellers and inspired suburbanites to cultivate their own flower gardens.
'The amount of public green space in Paris was rapidly expanded 100-fold, from about 45 acres to 4,500 acres. The result was transformational in many ways, and sparked a real mania for gardening and for the outdoors,' says curator Susan Alyson Stein, who organized the show with curator Colta Ives.
