Join us to experience an illustrated presentation on The Olmsted Legacy by writer, public historian and filmmaker Laurence Cotton. Mr. Cotton originated and served as Consulting Producer to the NEH-funded, nationally broadcast PBS special “Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America.” He will present an information rich and entertaining talk about Frederick Law Olmsted’s life, career and legacy and presents a mini-travelogue of select Olmsted landscapes across N. America—those designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., the two sons and the Olmsted Bros. landscape architecture firm. Learn about this extraordinary legacy of a Renaissance man and how his philosophy, his writings and his designs are still relevant today.
