Please join The Fairfield Garden Club and the Fairfield Museum and History Center on Tuesday, APRIL 19 from 6pm – 8pm at the Sacred Heart University Community Theatre for a free screening of the PBS special “Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America,” followed by a lecture by historian Laurence Cotton.
April 26, 2022 will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Law Olmsted, the master designer of public parks and a founder of the field of landscape architecture. This film beautifully presents the biography of a man whose parks and preservation ideas are now an essential part of American life.
Following the screening, Laurence Cotton, the originator and consulting producer of the film, will tell us more about the remarkable life and career of Olmsted, who was a writer, philosopher, social reformer, nature preservationist, and urban planner.
