Indiana's Human Landscapes: An Exhibit on the Land and Landscape Architecture of Indiana
Landscapes are more than
simply vistas or gardens. Landscapes are the products at
the intersection of people and nature, where human cultures and natural
systems come together to create a unique expression of the local place. These
landscapes include designed landscapes, those places arranged by
professionals, and cultural landscapes, those places that developed
through the process of many people living and working on the land over an
extended period of time.
In 1972, an exhibit
entitled Indiana: the Landscape of Man depicted the historic and
contemporary landscapes and landscape architecture of the state through
photographs, drawings, and descriptions. Since then, the landscapes of Indiana
have continued to change as Indiana prepares for the challenges of a new
century. Between 1972 and 2013, the work of landscape architects has also
evolved, creating new places in which people can live, work, revere, and
play. This exhibit explores a number of these new expressions on the land
and revisits some old ones seeking the continuity and change that comprises the
Indiana Landscape of 2013.
This exhibit is a joint project of the
Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning and Purdue University
Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. Supported by a grant
from the Indiana Humanities Council, with additional support from the Indiana
Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Exhibit venues : Rueff
Gallery, Purdue University; The Indianapolis Public Library; Ball State College
of Architecture and Planning Gallery.
