The Boston Architectural College is pleased to share The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley traveling exhibition, which debuted in the College's McCormick Gallery in November 2013, received the Award of Excellence in communications from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).

Dan Kiley (1912–2004) was one of the most important and influential Modernist landscape architects of the 20th century. Following the centennial of his birth in 2012 The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) created a traveling photographic exhibition that serves as a retrospective of his life and career.

The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley has been praised for not only honoring the work and legacy of a notable landscape architect, but for raising the visibility of the profession as a whole. The exhibition features 45 commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley's more than 1,000 projects worldwide and is accompanied by a full color catalogue and dynamic website with more extensive essays about each location along with recollections from former colleagues that provide valuable insights about Kiley's design philosophy and working methods.

The exhibition has traveled to Washington DC, Indiana, and Pittsburgh. Due to its popularity, it will continue to travel into 2016. Its debut at the BAC was facilitated by the School of Landscape Architecture in tandem with the ASLA Annual Meeting in Boston.
