Timeless Vision: The Renaissance Ideals of Rollins College and Winter Park
Wednesday, April 11, 2024| 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Crummer Auditorium, Rollins College
Victor Dover and Bruce Stephenson will examine the Renaissance ideals that define the historic plans for Winter Park and Rollins College. Drawn during the American Renaissance, the plans for Winter Park and Rollins College represent that last full flourish of the Renaissance that begun in Italy in the 15th Century. The speakers will illustrate how these works drew on the works of Frederick Law Olmsted and John Nolen and have informed the redesign of campus and community. The evening will conclude with a discussion of how Renaissance ideals inform Dover-Kohl's current effort to plan Lake Wales as "an Olmsted City." 's current project.
