Frederick Law Olmsted: Landscapes for the Public Good is now available. This downloadable exhibit features 23 panels of vivid photos and drawings, exploring the many facets of Olmsted’s life and legacy. Curated by Dr. Caroline Mesrobian Hickman of the University of Maryland and in conjunction with the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, the exhibit explores the many facets of Olmsted’s life and legacy. The download is offered free of charge after registration.
The exhibit comes with suggestions for display, ranging from traditional paper and posterboard to eco-friendly corrugated cardboard and outdoor stanchions, as well as estimated costs. This allows organizations to customize based on their space and budget.
Organizations may add their own panels so long as they conform to design and content guidelines. The panels are designed to be 18″ x 24″ and exported with a large .75″ bleed. This should allow the panels to be printed at standard poster size and mounted in poster frames without any text being covered or obscured. Exhibitors can always print at a larger scale, though some images may lose a bit of clarity when scaled up.
