What’s Out There Weekend (September 17-18, 2011)

From the words of The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF)

Discover 25 Bay Area parks and open spaces September 17 and 18, with FREE tours led by expert guides during What’s Out There Weekend. Organized by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, the “Mostly Modern” themed weekend offers insights and exploration of some of the area’s most innovative examples of Modernist landscape architecture and the fascinating people who created them, including the Kaiser Center Roof Garden in Oakland (Ted Osmundson), Levi’s Plaza in San Francisco (Lawrence Halprin), and Mitchell and Bowden Parks in Palo Alto (Robert Royston).  These are places many of us see daily, but do we know their stories? Visit http://tclf.org/landscapes/wot-weekend-sanfrancisco for more information about the tours, to volunteer, or to register, and find out about the SPUR panel discussion, opening reception at Room & Board, and chances to win a weekend for two at the Hotel Rex.

Don’t miss out on the preview events happening on September 15!
