Designing America

The Olmsted Legacy

At the Multnomah Arts Center
Friday, November 20 at 5:30 p.m.
Free & open to the public
Olmsted
The Olmsted Brothers architecture firm under the leadership of Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. and sons John Charles and Frederick Law, Jr. left a lasting legacy across North America. An outspoken writer against slavery and a former head of the U.S. Sanitary
Commission, Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. is greatly remembered as the protector of Niagara Falls and the designer of many U.S. public parks, including Central Park in New York
City, Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY, and the Capitol Hill grounds. Son John Charles Olmsted laid the groundwork for the park systems and many university campuses in the Pacific Northwest;
much of the greenscape and layout of today’s Portland can be traced to his influence.

Laurence Cotton, Consulting Producer on the new PBS film “Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America” will lead a screening of this film followed by a discussion with Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté, and architect William J. Hawkins III, author of the
newly published book The Legacy of the Olmsted Brothers in Portland, Oregon.
