Frederick Law Olmsted: Landscapes for the Public Good is a downloadable exhibit with 23 panels of vivid photos and drawings. The exhibit explores the many facets of Olmsted’s life and legacy, highlighting some of his most well-known projects like the U.S. Capitol Grounds in Washington and Central Park in New York City.

Curated by Dr. Caroline Mesrobian Hickman of the University of Maryland and in conjunction with the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, the exhibit is an exciting resource in Olmsted 200’s repository.
