The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley, a traveling photographic exhibition, is dedicated to the life and work of Dan Kiley (1912-2004). Kiley was one of the nation’s most important postwar landscape architects. During his prolific career, which spanned more than half a century, he worked with equally significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged Modernist masterpieces. Kiley's legacy is substantial, influential, and, like most Modernist designed landscapes, ephemeral.

The exhibition features 45 newly commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs, including: the Miller House and Garden, Columbus, IN; the Art Institute of Chicago South Garden, Chicago, IL; and one of his final residential projects, Patterns, a garden for Gov. & Mrs. Pierre S. “Pete” du Pont IV in Delaware. A full-color gallery guide – What’s Out There: The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley – funded through a Kickstarter campaign, includes images from the exhibition, brief site descriptions, site plans and excerpts from recently collected personal recollections from colleagues (an additional site currently under restoration at the National Gallery of Art is included in the catalogue but not the exhibition). A more in-depth treatment of Kiley’s life and legacy is available on TCLF’s website.
