FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED: DESIGNING AMERICA
To Frederick Law Olmsted, a park was both a work of art and a necessity for urban life. Olmsteds efforts to preserve nature created an environmental ethic decades before the environmental movement became a force in American politics. With gorgeous cinematography, and compelling commentary this film presents the biography of a man whose parks and preservation are an essential part of American life.
An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.
