The New American Garden Exhibition lands at Nassau County Museum of Art

The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden, opened at The Manes Family Art & Education Center at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor, New York on August 3, 2017.

The traveling photographic exhibition chronicles the careers and influence of the firm’s founding partners, Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden.

Curated by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, the exhibition is presented by The Manes Family Art & Education Center at the Nassau County Museum of Art. Prior to the Nassau County Museum of Art, the exhibition has been on view in Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

OvS Principal Eric Groft and Designer Lili Herrera attended the opening soiree. Groft welcomed attendees and briefly spoke about how Oehme and van Sweden revolutionized landscape architecture with their horticulturally exuberant designs and how their philosophy translates to the firm’s current work.

There is no Museum admission fee and will be on display during the Museum hours, Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. It runs through September 10, 2017.
