Screening of “Jens Jensen: Harmonious World” Documentary Film   
Thursday, September 23rd
Hours: 7 pm – 10 pm
Where: Jensen Room at the Garfield Park Conservatory
Cost: Free!

In the early 20th century, visionary landscape architect Jens Jensen was green before the word ecology even existed. Highly ethical and inspired by nature, he created landscapes for Chicago’s working poor, and was the visionary architect behind the Garfield Park Conservatory. "Jens Jensen Harmonious World" is a documentary filmed for PBS by Carey Lundin and Mark Frazel of Viva Lundin Productions, based in Chicago. The film will help Americans better appreciate what landscape architecture is and how the early fight for conservation was won through design and vision as much as politics. A “rough cut” of the film will be screened, and guests are encouraged to share their opinions to help complete the film.

For more information about the film, please visit the Jens Jensen Harmonious World website here.

This screening is part of a larger “Jens Jensen Legacy Project” event series being held between August 11th and October 29th. For information about other events taking place to celebrate Jensen’s 150th birthday, please visit the Jens Jensen Legacy Project website here.
