Dumbarton Oaks

Dumbarton Oaks Dumbarton Oaks is a museum, garden, & research institute in Georgetown, Washington, DC
(248)

Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is an institute in Washington, D.C., administered by the Trustees for Harvard University. It supports research and learning internationally in Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies through fellowships and internships, meetings, and exhibitions. Located in residential Georgetown, Dumbarton Oaks welcomes researchers at all career st

ages who come to study its books, objects, images, and documents. It opens its doors to the public to visit its historic Gardens, designed by Beatrix Farrand; its Museum, with world-class collections of art; and its Music Room, for lectures and concerts. The institute disseminates knowledge through its own publications (such as the Dumbarton Oaks Papers and symposium volumes) as well as through the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (published by Harvard University Press). Dumbarton Oaks also makes accessible ever more of its resources freely online. The founding donors, Robert Woods Bliss and Mildred Barnes Bliss, called upon future policy-makers “to remember that Dumbarton Oaks is conceived in a new pattern, where quality and not number shall determine the choice of its scholars; that it is the home of the Humanities, not a mere aggregation of books and objects of art; that the house itself and the gardens have their educational importance and that all are of humanistic value.” These ambitions continue to guide Dumbarton Oaks, but with close attention to ensuring that the Blisses’ “new pattern” retains its vitality through constant renewal.

"We stand together with the Armenian community in denouncing these atrocities. Dumbarton Oaks will continue to document, study, and disseminate throughout the world the extraordinarily rich and historically significant cultural heritage of this community, a heritage and people that were once and now again are being threatened by unjust and inhumane aggression."

Thomas B.F. Cummins, PhD
Director, Dumbarton Oaks

I write on behalf of the community at Dumbarton Oaks, which from its very conception served as home for scholars of the Armenian culture, to express our deepest concern over the barbaric and tragic events taking place in Nagorno-Karabakh (known as Artsakh to Armenians). We stand together with the Ar...

Long cherished by Indigenous peoples for its medicinal and stimulating properties, Guaraná had a rich cultural history long before European naturalists explored South America and even before the Portuguese arrived in Brazil in 1500.

The Sateré-Mawé people of the Amazon trace the plant’s history back to the early stages of creation, with the word waraná signifying (according to historian Seth Garfield) the “beginning of all explanation or knowledge.”

After 11 months at Dumbarton Oaks, Hugh Hayden's BRIER PATCH (first exhibited in Madison Square Park, New York) is headed to its next home. A portion of the exhibition - 16 chairs - is going to the Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, Missouri. The remainder is going to Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas.

Dumbarton Oaks is honored to have hosted such an acclaimed installation, whose ambivalent messages about the challenges and opportunities of education took on particular relevance in the context of an academic institution like DO.

Join us for “Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect,” with Judith B Tankard, live on Zoom on Thursday, April 7. Beatrix Farrand, the only female founder of the American Society of Landscape Architects, is one of the most important landscape architects of the early twentieth century. Today, the scope of her work and her influence on the profession are widely acknowledged, and her gardens are being studied, restored, and opened to the public. A long-awaited updated edition of the 2009 definitive monograph, “Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect,” chronicles the life and work of one of the most important figures in American landscape architecture. In this webinar, Judith Tankard will discuss the full breadth of the work of this iconic landscape architect.

Judith Tankard is a landscape historian, preservation consultant, and the author or coauthor of ten books on historic gardens and garden designers, most recently Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Her other books include Ellen Shipman and the American Garden (winner of the J. B. Jackson Book Prize) and three works on Gertrude Jekyll. Tankard taught at the Landscape Institute of Harvard University for more than twenty years and served as a board member of the Beatrix Farrand Society. She’s a frequent lecturer on landscape history and a contributor to the British journal Hortus.

A recording of this webinar will be sent to all registrants a few days after the event. We encourage you to register, even if you cannot attend the live webinar.
