How do Olmsted parks inspire art, and what makes an Olmsted park a work of art? We’ll examine these questions and more in Conversations with Olmsted: Exploring Olmsted Parks Through Art on Tuesday, August 20, at 3 pm ET. 

This webinar will be moderated by New York Times photographer Ruth Fremson. Fremson’s photo essay, Olmsted’s Enduring Gift, was compiled for Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th birthday on April 20, 2022, alongside her piece An Assignment I Needed: Frederick Law Olmsted’s Legacy. She’ll be joined by landscape architect Gary Hilderbrand of Reed Hilderbrand and others.
