In this video, I visit with Chanthou “Chakra” Oeur, a native of Cambodia and artist and poet who discusses the garden he maintains along Route 9 in Philipstown. many of his own stone or wood sculptures complementing the space.

He and his wife, Sokhara, came to the U.S. after fleeing the Khmer Rouge regime.
