Ford Foundation Walking Tour
July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Come and start your afternoon with lunch in the Club’s Grill Room followed by a stroll to the newly reopened Ford Foundation’s Gallery and Garden located a few short blocks from the Club. Individuals are encouraged to explore the atrium and gallery at their own pace.
The Ford Foundation for Social Justice headquarters building includes a 9,000 square foot, 160 foot tall Atrium garden designed by Dan Kiley. The Foundation’s mission-driven renovation modernized the building and also included a renovation of the garden to restore the spirit of the original Kiley design. Kiley’s design distanced him from the orthogonal layout he was known for by paying homage to the New England forest. His plant selections maintained open sightlines for transparency and light penetration, complementing the Atrium’s monumental scale and creating an intimate garden experience. There will be a club table for lunch at 12pm and the group will leave the lobby to walk to the Ford Foundation at 1:15pm.
Free for members, $15 for guests
