Film Screening: Women in the Dirt

Date:August 19, 2015
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Dallas Center for Architecture
1909 Woodall Rodgers Frwy.
Suite 100
Dallas, Texas 75201

Our screening of Women in the Dirt is presented in conjunction with our current exhibition on the landscape designs of Dan Kiley. 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.

Women are influencing the profession of landscape architecture more today than ever before. Women in the Dirt highlights the work of seven award-winning women who have made their mark in the field: Mia Lerher, Andrea Cochran, Cheryl Barton, Isabelle Greene, Katherine Spitz, Pamela Palmer, and Lauren Melendrez. Though each has a unique body of work, their concerns overlap in the realm of sustainability and enduring design.

Director Carolann Stoney conceived of the idea for this documentary while she herself was studying landscape architecture. Her short film on the subject received the 2009 American Society of Landscape Architects Student Honors Award in Communication.

We will begin the evening with a reception and light refreshments, followed by the screening at 6:30 p.m. As always, we'll remain for a few minutes afterwards for a discussion of the film. $10 donation requested at the door. To RSVP, send e-mail to

Cost:$10 donation at the door.
