In response to the 11 Chicago museums’ brief, Washington, D.C.-based Cultural Landscape Foundation, which advocates for the “informed stewardship” of “significant cultural landscapes,” questioned the lack of any mention of Jackson Park’s historical significance in the museums’ brief. They particularly noted the lack of any mention of Jackson Park’s designer, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also helped design New York’s Central Park.
