The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s (TCLF) Annual Silent Auction of artwork by award-winning landscape architects, artists, photographers, and allied professionals will be a highlight of the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO at the Los Angeles Convention Center on October 21-22. Proceeds from this thirteenth annual auction benefit the Pioneers of American Landscape Design Oral History Project, an ever-growing, award-winning series of videotaped first person interviews with significant practitioners. Complete information about the auction can be found at the Silent Auction website

View and bid on more than 90 works of art at the EXPO, Booth #768. Thanks to a new bidding process instituted last year to great success, bidders will be able to participate online, which means those not attending the EXPO can still join in the excitement and acquire works of art on offer. Online bidding begins on October 3, 2017 at 10 a.m. EST, and will end concurrently with the in-person auction, at 5 p.m. PST on Sunday, October 22.  

Featured works include: a signed lithograph from 1985, Macunaima I, by Roberto Burle Marx, donated by Burle Marx protégé Raymond Jungles, FASLA; Tom Lamb’s dazzling aerial image Walking on Water – Christo 2016 – Floating Piers, showing artist Christo’s golden installation on Italy’s Lake Iseo; Meg Birnbaum’s carefree and buoyant Circle Swing, from a portfolio of photographs about summer fairs in New England titled Corn Dogs, Blue Ribbons, and the American Pastoral; and, Michael Kenna’s mesmerizing photo Kussharo Lake Tree, Study 16, Kotan, Hokkaido Japan.   

TCLF is grateful for the generous support of our auction donors and ASLA, our annual sponsor. Their continued commitment to this project ensures that the funds raised go directly to support TCLF's programming. In 2003, TCLF launched the Pioneers of American Landscape Design initiative in partnership with the ASLA, with the goal of documenting, collecting, and preserving the unique, first-hand perspectives of renowned landscape practitioners.
