City in a Garden: Alfred Caldwell's Eagle Point Park

Heritage Works Inc. is hosting a symposium:  "City in a Garden:  Alfred Caldwell's Eagle Point Park" as part of its inaugural Dubuque Heritage Festival on October 7 & 8, 2016. This year’s festival will highlight Alfred Caldwell’s work at Dubuque’s Eagle Point Park.

In 1934, the City of Dubuque, Iowa, turned to a young Prairie School landscape architect, Alfred Caldwell, to design and then supervise the construction of landscapes and shelters at Dubuque’s Eagle Point Park.  It was Caldwell’s first large scale commission.  Over 80 years later, we are now celebrating his work with a two-day symposium and community celebration focusing on Caldwell’s work. 

The symposium: “City in a Garden:  Alfred Caldwell’s Eagle Point Park” is designed for those interested in learning more about Caldwell’s work through the lens of his designs for Eagle Point Park. A list of speakers can be found on our website. Additionally, 6.0 hours of AIA CEUs and LA CES are pending approval.

The symposium is part of a community event that will include the opening of an exhibit on Friday evening, October 7th at the Dubuque Museum of Art featuring original Alfred Caldwell drawings and artifacts from his time in Dubuque. There will be docent-led tours of Caldwell’s shelters and landscapes at Eagle Point Park on Saturday, October 8th. We hope that you will attend and also invite your colleagues and constituents to attend.
