Dan Kiley (1912-2004) was one of the most important and influential Modernist landscape architects of the 20th century and worked with equally significant architects, such as Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged design icons.
Following the centennial of his birth in 2012, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) created a traveling photographic exhibition that serves as a retrospective of his life and career, and chronicles the current state of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 projects worldwide. The exhibition includes major publicly accessible commissions including the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, MO (which features the arch designed by Eero Saarinen); the Miller House and Garden in Columbus, IN (another collaboration with Saarinen and later Kevin Roche) now owned and operated by the Indianapolis Museum of Art; the Ford Foundation atrium in New York, NY; and the Art Institute of Chicago, South Garden, Chicago, IL. Two Dallas projects—Fountain Place and the Sculpture Garden of the Dallas Museum of Art—are also featured.
The exhibition will be shown at the Dallas Center for Architecture from July 20-September 18. Several complementary events will be held, and a catalogue will be available for sale.
The Center is open Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and Fridays from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
