The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is hosting The New American Garden: The Landscape architecture of Oehme, van Sweden, a traveling photographic exhibition celebrating the lives and careers of Wolfgang Oehme (1930-2011) and James van Sweden (1935-2013) who revolutionized landscape architecture with their “New American Garden” design style, which featured great profusions of grasses, bulbs and perennials in sweeps of texture, form and color that had year-round appeal.

The exhibition includes more than four dozen contemporary and newly commissioned photographs of important residential, civic, and commercial projects. It is timed to the 25th anniversary of the influential 1990 book Bold Romantic Gardens, which the two business partners wrote with Susan Rademacher, currently the parks curator at the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and chronicles 21 projects that introduced the world to their horticulturally exuberant designs.

Generous support has been provided by Presenting Sponsors Americana Manhasset, Anonymous, the Joseph and Sylvia Slifka Foundation, Inc. and Pauline Vollmer, with additional support from the American Society of Landscape Architects, and Landscape Architecture Magazine.
