How do we make sure that green spaces in Milwaukee and beyond are open and accessible to all individuals? What does it mean to create truly democratic public places? Can we look to such historical figures as noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to answer such timely questions? Join a panel of Milwaukee-based academics and practitioners as they discuss these important relationships between the past, present, and even future of such important spaces.
Panelists will be:

Arijit Sen, Associate Professor, Architecture and Urban Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Patrick Mullins, Associate Professor, History, Marquette University
August Ball, Founder, Cream City Conservation
Steven Hunter, Program Director, Nearby Nature Milwaukee

Panel Co-Moderators:
Michael Carriere, Milwaukee School of Engineering
Jennifer Current, Quorum Architects

This panel discussion is part of programming for “In the Park with Frederick Law Olmsted: A Vision for Milwaukee” exhibition, on view at the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum from April 14, 2022, to September 18, 2022. Thank you to event sponsor Margarete Harvey.
