Programs and Sponsorship Opportunities for 2024:
Landslide® 2024: Demonstration Grounds. Each year TCLF creates a thematic Landslide report and digital exhibition about threatened and at-risk cultural landscapes, with the goal of making each site more visible, revealing its value, and promoting public engagement in the form of advocacy and stewardship.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo or name on the program web page, in the digital exhibition, in e-blasts, and recognition in the press release, and elsewhere.
Oberlander Prize Forums. As part of The Cornelia Hahn Oberlander International Landscape Architecture Prize, TCLF will curate both in-person and virtual Oberlander Prize Forums following the announcement of the Laureate to raise the visibility of the honoree’s work and of landscape architecture more broadly.
Walks & Talks: This relatively new and extremely popular program focused on urban landscapes features walking tours led by award-winning landscapes who offer their unique perspectives on places they see daily as they walk to work and/or through favorite public landscapes. Limited to 25 attendees and ranging from 90 minutes to three hours in duration, Walks & Talks are unscripted, mobile seminars led by design thought leaders who share their unique way of seeing the world.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo or name on the program web page, in e-blasts, recognition in the press release, and elsewhere.
What’s Out There® Weekends: Hosted in different cities every year, What’s Out There Weekends bring to light the unique landscape legacy and local character of each city as reflected by its publicly accessible parks, gardens, plazas, cemeteries, memorials, and neighborhoods. Engaging large and diverse audiences (typically 1,000+), this program offers two days of free, expert-led tours of more than two dozen sites that demonstrate the region’s diverse landscape legacy, encouraging participants to discover the little-known design history of places they may pass every day.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo or your name on the event web page, in the printed guidebook, in the online city guide, in e-blasts, recognition in the press release, and elsewhere.
Garden Dialogues: Now in its twelfth year, Garden Dialogues brings together landscape architects and their clients to discuss the creative process, the give and take, and the collaboration that yields a great garden. This unique program offers small groups the opportunity to experience some of today’s most beautiful gardens created by some of the most accomplished landscape architects and designers currently in practice. In this tenth anniversary season, Garden Dialogues will take place across the country from March through October, with tours offering audiences the chance to join the conversation among owner, designer, and, if appropriate, other significant contributors to the garden’s design (e.g., architect, master gardener, historian).
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo on the event web page, on e-blasts, have your logo printed on each program distributed to event attendees, receive complimentary registrations to socialize with attendees, and more.
Pioneers of Landscape Design Oral History Project: Pioneers oral histories are an ever-growing, award-winning series of videotaped first-person interviews with significant practitioners. Now featuring seventeen oral histories, the series examines each designer’s personal and professional history, their overall design philosophy, and how that approach was carried out in their most emblematic projects. The richly edited video segments include never-before-seen archival footage, new photography, and on‐location videography.
This year's oral histories include:
Commensurate with sponsorship level, benefits include recognition on project’s web page, recognition on project launch e-blasts and press release, and more.
Race and Space: Announced in 2020, the Race and Space initiative spans all of TCLF’s programming and is dedicated to increasing documentation and awareness of cultural landscapes throughout the U.S. associated with African Americans, Latinx Americans, Native peoples, and others. In 2021, the annual Landslide report and digital exhibition examined thirteen sites through detailed, richly illustrated narratives and eighteen short videos.
- Cultural Landscape Guide to African American Landscapes published in February 2024, features more than 140 African American cultural landscapes throughout the U.S. spanning centuries of American history and prehistory. Multiple themes are explored, including enslavement, reconstruction, the racial segregation of public accommodations (including parks and schools), civil rights history, and commemoration. The digital guide aims to raise the visibility and value of these myriad sites, provoking further discussion and research. The guide simultaneously amplifies the contributions of African American designers and shapers who have significantly contributed to landscapes across the nation. The content is folded into TCLF’s What’s Out There database, which includes more than 2,700 sites, 1,400 profiles, and 14,000 images, all vetted by researchers and historians. Each entry includes a description of the site’s design history, photographs, and an interactive map. With additional support, TCLF aspires to habitually expand this guide.
- Race and Space Conversations is an ongoing series of free, virtual moderated discussions between esteemed experts--including landscape architects, historians, kin-keepers, and public officials--reckoning with spatial inequities and reimagining our built and natural environment.

The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley: A traveling photographic exhibition about one of America's most important and influential Modernist landscape architects will be hosted by ABC Stone at the Exhibition Space @ ABC Brooklyn, Winter-Spring 2024. Created in 2013 (following the centennial of Kiley's birth in 1912), and curated by TCLF, the exhibition features nearly 50 newly commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs including: the Miller House and Garden, Columbus, IN; the Art Institute of Chicago South Garden, IL; and the Ford Foundation Atrium, New York, N.Y. A scaled back version of the exhibition was shown in New York in 2015; a Wall Street Journal review stated the exhibition "shows how modern landscapes often make a better case for modernism than the architecture itself." The exhibition at ABC will feature all of the photographs along with additions: richly produced video interviews with former Kiley employees (Rich Haag, Joe Karr, and Harriett Pattison); and, an epilogue dedicated to the recent rehabilitation of the Ford Foundation Atrium.
