The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden
Saturday, January 14, 2017 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
“The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden” traveling photographic exhibit will be coming to Cylburn Arboretum’s Vollmer Visitor Center from January 6 to March 26.
Oehme and van Sweden revolutionized landscape architecture with the creation of the New American Garden, a type of garden characterized by large swaths of grasses and fields of perennials. Their style celebrated the seasonal splendor of the American meadow while promoting its inherent ecological, sustainable, aesthetic, and ornamental values. According to van Sweden: “It is vigorous and audacious, and it vividly blends the natural and the cultivated.”
The New American Garden is a project of The Cultural Landscape Foundation‘s Landslide program, which raises awareness about threatened and at-risk works of landscape architecture.
