Modernism + Film: Frederick Law Olmsted ‘Designing America’

August 16, 2018 at 6 p.m.

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
420 South Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28202

Tickets: $10 (non-members) $8 (members)

To Frederick Law Olmsted, a park was both a work of art and a necessity for urban life. Olmsted’s efforts to preserve nature created an “environmental ethic” decades before the environmental movement became a force in American politics. With gorgeous cinematography, and compelling commentary this film presents the biography of a man whose parks and preservation are an essential part of American life.

An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.

Watch the trailer for Frederick Olmsted: Designing America.
