Lawrence Halprin Exhibit at Palace of Fine Arts
August 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until September 4, 2017
In partnership with The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF), SF Rec and Park and NonPlusUltra will host The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin at the Palace of Fine Arts. The exhibit is a traveling photographic exhibition about the life and work of landscape architect Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009). The exhibit is free and open to the public and runs through May 25, 2017 through September 4, 2017. The exhibition, which debuted at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is organized and curated by TCLF. Created in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin’s birth, the exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers of dozens of Halprin’s major works, ranging from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career in the 1950s to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. and capstone projects such as the Yosemite Falls approach and Stern Grove in San Francisco. The exhibition both honors the influential designer and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his irreplaceable legacy.
