As many readers know, Sara Johns Griffen, president and CEO of The Olana Partnership, is retiring at the end of the year. John Mason has an article about Griffen and all that has been achieved at Olana under her leadership in today's Register-Star: "Olana's Griffith leaving after 25 years on job."
A major development in the past two decades is the focus on the preservation of the viewshed and the restoration of the 258-acre Olana landscape, which Griffen says is "as important a part of Church's legacy as the home." Groundswell, which happens today from 2 to 6 p.m., offers the perfect opportunity to spend time in the Olana landscape, exploring its undiscovered roads and natural scenes while witnessing site-specific works and performances. Advance tickets are still available online. Tickets can also be purchased at the event. COPYRIGHT 2014 CAROLE OSTERINK
