  1. Opening Reception for A Genius For Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era

    Join us for the opening reception for September's display in the Jones Library atrium and a screening of the documentary Fletcher Steele and Naumkeag, which explores the design of Naumkeag in Stockbridge, one of the seven Country Place-era landscapes featured in the exhibition. Robin Karson, the executive director of LALH and author of the exhibition (and the book of the same title), will introduce the documentary and take questions after the screening. ­A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era is a panel exhibition created by the Library of American Landscape History (LALH). A narrative by landscape historian Robin Karson and photographs by Carol Betsch trace the development of an important movement in American landscape design through seven country estate landscapes designed between 1905 and 1950. The panel exhibition will be on display at the Jones Library through September.
