Join us to watch this beautiful film by Carey Lundin. Jens Jensen rose up from street-sweeper to the Dean of American Landscape Architecture. He battled endemic civic corruption to design Chicago's great parks as idealized prairie landscapes; saved the Indiana Dunes from becoming a giant steel mill; and designed over 600 landscapes for clients like Henry Ford and Julius Rosenwald. Ms Lundin will introduce her film before the screening, and host a Question/Answer session following the movie.
