“Amazing Groves:  Landscape and Memory at Bristol’s North and South Farms”

Beginning around 1870, George Rogers Hall, the first American to introduce Japanese trees and shrubs to the U.S. in the nineteenth century, established a groundbreaking collection on his estate in Bristol.  This talk examines the importer’s extraordinary garden and the utility of both his plantings and his memory to his heirs and successors.  Over time, stakeholders engaged variously in preservation, transformation, and veneration of the site, reshaping the landscape as they laid claim to his legacy.

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  

Chapter business meeting

12:00 – 2:00 p.m.    

Drive from RWU into downtown Bristol.  Enjoy lunch and a chance to explore Bristol on your own.  Please see below for a list of dining choices.

 

Byfield School, Bristol

Presentation and tour by Michael Rich, Associate Professor of Art and Chairman of Arts in Common.

Just before 2:00 p.m. we will meet at the Byfield School on the corner of Church Street and High Street on the Bristol Town Common.  Professor Rich will talk about the work that Arts in Common is doing, in collaboration with others, to create an arts and culture district in Bristol.  The early nexus of the district is three former public school buildings currently in various stages of renovation and adaptive reuse.  A Providence Journal article from January provides some background on the project.
