Masters of Modern Landscape Design
Deadline: September 28, 2013
Indianapolis Museum of Art
In collaboration with the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Library of American Landscape History will stage a national conference featuring eight of the mid-twentieth century’s most influential landscape architects. These practitioners began to question the traditional Beaux Arts methods of design as early as the 1930s. Rejecting historical precedent, they searched for spatial and artistic forms relevant to the modern condition.
The panel of distinguished speakers will help promote awareness of landscape design as an important art form and urge support for the preservation of great works of American modernism. The speakers are also authors in a new book series by LALH to be distributed by W. W. Norton.
The mission of the Library of American Landscape History is to foster understanding of the fine art of landscape architecture and appreciation for North America’s richly varied landscape heritage through LALH books, exhibitions, and online resources. Learn More.
