Olmsted and America’s Urban Parks

This documentary examines the formation of America’s first great city parks in the late 19th century through the enigmatic eyes of Frederick Law Olmsted (1822 – 1903), visionary urban planner and landscape architect. It shares Olmsted’s vision for public parks as places for respite, health, beauty and democracy.


The evening will be hosted by filmmaker Ray Asselin and feature a reception from 6:00-7:00 pm in the gallery and a short Q & A after the film. The film screening will start at 7 pm and donations are graciously accepted.
