A public opening reception on March 5, 4:30-6:00 p.m., includes remarks by Robin Karson, author and curator, and Carol Betsch, photographer. Copies of the new paperback edition of the companion book,  A Genius for Place, will be available for purchase and signing at the reception. (For visitor information, call 413-545-0284.)

Like the original museum exhibition of the same title, which toured in museums nationwide between 2000 and 2012, the panel version features seven American estate landscapes designed by significant landscape architects during the first four decades of the twentieth century.
