Olmstead: Environmental Visionary at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens
February 1, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An impersonation of Frederick Law Olmstead by Kirk Brown, Vice President of the Garden Writers Association (Mr. Brown will be in character and costume!)
Join us for a dramatic presentation on the life and landscape designs of Frederick Law Olmstead, the father of Landscape Architecture, who created cities out of the American wilderness and began a conservation movement still challenging the world today. In addition to New York’s Central Park, Prospect Park, and Newport, Rhode Island’s Cliff Walk, Olmstead’s designs are too numerous to mention yet each is truly noteworthy today.
