Piet Oudolf with Thomas Piper

Calderwood Hall

Join us for a screening of Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, followed by Piet Oudolf and Thomas Piper in conversation with Charles Waldheim.

Piet Oudolf is an internationally recognized Dutch garden designer, plantsman, and author. Oudolf is a leading figure of the "New Perennial" movement. He practices a naturalistic approach to gardening using bold drifts of perennials and grasses chosen at least as much for their structure as for their color.

Thomas Piper is an award-winning non-fiction filmmaker, focusing on design and contemporary art. Five Seasons won the Polly Krakora Award for Artistry in Film at the 2018 DC Environmental Film Festival. In 2008, his film Ellsworth Kelly: Fragments won best Film for Television at the International Festival of Films on Art in Montreal.

Patrons are invited to a private reception with Piet Oudolf following the screening.
