Design Council of the Denver Art Museum and Denver Botanic Gardens are pleased to present Thomas Piper’s documentary, Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf.
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works—like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park—that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves.
This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.
Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf is a pleasure on multiple fronts: sensorially, conceptually, narratively. Join the film’s producer and director Thomas Piper, an award-winning non-fiction filmmaker, for this 75-minute documentary and a conversation to follow the screening.
Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Presented by Design Council of the Denver Art Museum, a DAM support group, and Denver Botanic Gardens.
