                                                                                   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.
