Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, Carriage House: 714 North Portage Path, Akron OH 44303


The Nature Conservancy welcomes you to this presentation at the beautiful stan hywet hall & gardens to learn how artists have shaped the national park service

Terry Seidel, Director of Land Protection for The Nature Conservancy in Ohio, discusses the role that artists have played over the past 100 years in the establishment of the National Park Service. Highlighting works from the Hudson River School movement founded by Thomas Cole, Mr. Seidel features Cole, his followers and other artists that have inspired and promoted what has been called “America’s best idea.” Mr. Seidel also makes connections between Ohio, these influential artists and the National Parks that we enjoy today.
