Description: The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects present a screening of "The Life and Gardens of Beatrix Farrand," a new documentary about a pioneering female landscape architect in early 20th-century America. Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959) grew up in the privileged world of the East Coast elite and fought through the challenges of working in a male-dominated profession to design over 200 landscape commissions during her remarkable 50-year career. The documentary by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Karyl Evans explores Farrand’s personal story and many of her most spectacular gardens, including Eolia at Harkness, Hill-Stead, Promisek, and Yale University in Connecticut. After the screening, a panel of landscape architects and managers of Farrand-designed facilities will discuss the challenges and issues associated with preserving historic gardens and landscapes.
