In tandem with the Landslide program, TCLF periodically produces traveling photographic exhibitions that illustrate the year’s thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk sites. Each exhibition features newly commissioned photography, narratives about the individual sites and the theme being explored, and ways for the public to get involved. The first two exhibitions, Heroes of Horticulture (2007) and Marvels of Modernism (2008), were produced in collaboration with the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. Subsequent exhibitions include: Every Tree Tells a Story (2010); The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley (2013); The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden (2015); and The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin (2016). The exhibitions travel across the nation from three to five years and are shown at museums, galleries, arboreta, universities, and other venues.
Also in tandem with the Landslide program, every year since 2006, TCLF has produced an online exhibition about the year’s thematic compendium. Like the traveling exhibitions, the online ones feature newly commissioned photography, informative narratives about the sites and the theme, and avenues for public involvement. Beginning with the Kiley Landslide in 2013, the online versions of the exhibitions present additional photography not included in the traveling exhibition, along with recollections from friends, family members, and colleagues. In 2015’s New American Garden and 2016’s The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin online exhibitions feature clips from the Pioneers Oral History with James van Sweden and Lawrence Halprin, respectively, along with the additional photography and recollections.
