The Cultural Landscape Foundation to feature several HAHS sites in Garden Dialogues 2017

Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) is thrilled that The Cultural Landscape Foundation will be featuring several HAHS sites as part of their Garden Dialogues series this season.

Saturday June 24, HAHS member, Olana will hold Glorious Olana with Margie Ruddick & Julia Rosenbaum in partnership with TCLF. Join Margie Ruddick, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award Winner in Landscape Architecture, and Julia B. Rosenbaum, Associate Professor and Chair, Art History, Bard College and Olana's Director of Research & Publications, for an in-depth and exhilarating exploration of the 250-acre Persian-inspired estate designed by Hudson River School painter Frederic Edwin Church in collaboration with Calvert Vaux.

Later this fall, both Chesterwood (Saturday, September 16) and fellow HAHS member Manitoga will also take part in this program. Stay tuned for details. The Elisabet Ney Museum (another HAHS member) was also recently featured in one of TCLF’s What’s Out There Weekends, which took place in Austin, Texas.

A non-profit established in 1998, The Cultural Landscape Foundation® (TCLF) educates and engages the public to make our shared landscape heritage more visible, identify its value, and empower its stewards. TCLF achieves this mission through the ongoing development of its core programs, including Garden Dialogues.

In 2017, CLF has decided to explore the relationship between artists and their own personal landscapes. Garden Dialogues 2017: Artists in Residence will include architects, landscape architects, sculptors, painters, and other visual artists. Each Dialogue will be facilitated by expert landscape architects, architects, and artists – often pairing a site’s historian or curator with a contemporary artist or practitioner.

Space at each of these events is limited to thirty people, so make sure to reserve your spot early!
