Screening of Laurence Cotton's film, Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America

Tuesday, September 24

In the Second Floor Event Space, we will be screening the Laurence Cotton film, Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America and discussing the film with the film maker. Frederick Law Olmsted is considered the greatest landscape architect who ever lived. Noted for his work on central Park, the Emerald Necklace in Boston, and the "White City" of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Olmsted created and co-designed countless public and private landscapes throughout North America. His sons carried on his legacy, working on state and county party systems, and our National Parks. This PBS film focuses on Olmsted's life and career, numerous endeavors and accomplishments in multiple fields.
