The New American Garden Exhibition lands at Circle Gallery at University of Georgia

The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden opens at the University of Georgia from January 16th. The exhibition is on display at the University’s Circle Gallery, which is located in the Jackson Street Building.

The traveling photographic exhibition chronicles the careers and influence of the firm’s founding partners, Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden and delves into the firm’s Second Generation, led by current Principals Lisa Delplace, Sheila Brady, and Eric Groft.

Curated and produced by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, the exhibition is presented by the Dan Franklin Fund. Prior to the University of Georgia, the exhibition has been on view at Kansas State University, and in Charlottesville, VA, Roslyn Harbor, NY, Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, PA, and Baton Rouge, LA.

OvS Principal Eric Groft will lecture on January 16th  at 5:00 PM at the University. Groft will briefly speak 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.

The exhibit will be on display through February 21, 2019.
