Chestnut Hill Conservancy – Frederick Olmstead Symposium hosted at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy on Wednesday, April 6 at 7pm (doors open at 6:30 pm to view the exhibit). 2022 is the bicentennial of Frederick Law Olmsted—a leading cultural figure of his time and founder of the profession of landscape architecture as we know it and as it is practiced today. As part of the national celebration, Chestnut Hill Conservancy will host an evening symposium, “Living among Landmarks: The Olmsted Legacy in Chestnut Hill,” featuring a conversation among current-day owners of homesteads and gardens designed by his successors in the firm of Olmsted Brothers, Landscape Architects. Olmsted biographer Witold Rybczynski will introduce the program. Before and after his remarks and the panel discussion, the audience will have access to a pin-up display of photos and plans of all the known projects from the Olmsted Brothers’ decades of involvement in Chestnut Hill.
