Presented at the University of California Riverside- Palm Desert Center, Palm Desert, CA, this is a traveling photographic exhibition, dedicated to the life and work of Dan Kiley (1912-2004). Kiley's most famous work in California is probably the Oakland Museum of California where he worked with architects, Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates. But Kiley was one of the nation’s most important post-War landscape architects. During his prolific career, which spanned more than half a century, he worked with equally significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged Modernist masterpieces. Read on about the exhibit and see the online exhibition.
