As of March 13, the Pulitzer is closed to the public until April 2 and postponing all programs during this time out of concern and care for the safety and well-being of our community. Learn more about our response to COVID-19 here.
Join artist and landscape designer Chris Carl of Studio Land Arts and the Pulitzer’s Director of Public Engagement Kristin Fleischmann Brewer to celebrate the public opening of Park-Like. Carl and Brewer will lead walking tours throughout the day to talk about the project, sustainability, stewardship, and the park’s future usages. Bring a blanket, picnic basket, and weather appropriate attire.
Located across the street from the museum, Park-Like is a sustainably designed green space for visitors to meander along the grass pathways, investigate plants and wildlife in an urban setting, and be delighted by unexpected perspectives. The garden comprises both native and non-native plants, as well as found building materials that have been transformed into water filtration systems, retaining structures, seating, and play space. Utilizing site-responsive land and rainscaping techniques, the project was designed by Studio Land Arts to absorb stormwater runoff and reduce the impact on urban drainage and sewer systems while creating a site for wildlife and the public to enjoy.
Park-Like will be open to the public daily from sun up to sun down starting on May 9. Studio Land Arts is run by artist and landscape designer Chris Carl and based in Granite City, IL.
