Exhibition Opening: The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley

When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, MARCH 26

Where: At The Center   

Join us for the exhibition opening of The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley.

Dan Kiley (1912-2004) worked with equally significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, and I.M. Pei, to create internationally-acknowledged Modernist icons. His design legacy is substantial, influential, and, like the broad swath of our Modernist-designed landscape legacy, ephemeral. The exhibition honors Kiley and his legacy and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his work - and by extension Modernist landscape design.

The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley prompts questions and discussions about responsible stewardship, which is central to TCLF’s mission. While some Kiley designs are dying quiet deaths, others are extremely well maintained or require only modest attention to achieve their brilliance once again. The exhibition features dozens of recent photographs by noted artists such as Marion Brenner, Todd Eberle, Millicent Harvey, and Alan Ward that document the current state of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs, including New York projects like the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller University

The exhibition has been shown at several institutions around the country, including the National Building Museum.
