The Renaissance wasn’t just a flourishing period of culture and ideas – it was, and still is, a mind set. No one more exemplifies this than Gardner – inspired by art, music, gardens, travel, and the world around her, she was the ultimate Renaissance Woman.

New this year, creative snacks will also be offered up at the Courtside Bar for $1. “Courtside Bites” offerings will vary each month, and range from a Japanese rice cracker mix to spiced nuts and dried fruit and served up in an artful paper box.
