TCLF A Moveable Feast Tour and Luncheon
Ticketed Event. Tickets available through TCLF.
As a follow-up to last year’s private lunch at Mies van der Rohe’s masterwork Farnsworth House, The Cultural Landscape Foundation is planning a garden program for a very limited number of attendees in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C. This year, under the umbrella of “A Moveable Feast,” we will have a “curated” visit to three private gardens designed by James van Sweden (and Oehme, van Sweden + Associates). This progressive lunch and excursion will begin with a visit to one garden, the next will include light refreshments, while the third will include a buffet lunch. The on-foot garden excursion will be followed by a premiere of the James van Sweden Pioneers Oral History module and a conversation with Mr. van Sweden himself. Join James and TCLF Board members for this celebratory event.
Space is limited. $700 per ticket. If you wish to attend only the seated conversation portion of the event, tickets are $75. A portion of the ticket purchase is tax deductible.
Checks should be made payable to TCLF and sent to 1909 Q Street, NW, 2nd Floor, Washington, D.C. 20009, or register online at tclf.org/event.
