I don’t know what y’all are doing on May 6 to 8, but if landscape design tickles your pickle then you might want to hightail it down to the Lone Star State. The Cultural Landscape Foundation has partnered with Preservation Dallas and Historic Fort Worth to bring us Landscapes For Living: Post War Years In Texas, a symposium on modern landscape architecture in Texas at the Dallas Museum of Fine Art.

This is the sixth of nine regional symposia held in conjunction with the publication of Shaping The American Landscape: New Profiles From The Pioneers Of American Landscape Design Project (University of Virginia Press, 2009). Landscapes For Living will feature 13 guest speakers, a screening of “Water Garden” (1974) a film about Philip Johnson’s designs for Fort Worth, and tours of many local private and public gardens. Speakers include Charles Birnbaum, Mark Gunderson, Laurie Olin, Doug Reed, Fritz Steiner, and Frank Welch. They will address the work of Arthur and Marie Burger, Lawrence Halprin, and Philip Johnson.

Doug Reed will lead tours of both public and private landscapes, including Heritage Park, the Water Gardens, the former Patty and Henry Beck House, and the Greelee house. In addition, Tary Aterburn, a panel participant and landscape architect, will take symposium goers to one of his firms recent commissions.
