Commemorating a Milestone for Landscape Architecture

Wednesday, May 17 marked the opening of the long awaited Center for Landscape Architecture in Washington, D.C. Housed in the historic headquarters building of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), the Center gives ASLA "a bright new home that embodies the mission, vision, and values of the Society, and is also a showcase for sustainable design excellence."

I'm deeply honored that the Society asked me to create a watercolor sketch (below) of the newly renovated building to commemorate the Center's opening. High quality prints were given as a gift to the project's major donors at a formal dinner and a VIP reception earlier this week.  I personalized most of the prints for the recipients on the spot.

The American Society of Landscape Architects was founded in 1899.  The opening of the Center is a major milestone for the Society.  Congratulations to ASLA, its staff, officers, membership, the donors, and all who have worked diligently to make this dream a reality!
