Tribute to Bob Riley Day 1
Robert B. Riley (1931–2019) made an immeasurable impact on the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, serving as Head of the Department for 15 years, and teaching for two decades thereafter. On February 7 we will gather at the Morton Arboretum to reflect on Bob’s life and achievements. The event will begin with a reception in the Founder’s Room at 4:00, followed at 5:30 by tributes from many of Bob’s colleagues and a keynote lecture by Dr. Rachel Leibowitz, the first graduate of the UIUC PhD program in landscape architecture, of which Bob was one of the key designers. For people in the Champaign-Urbana area, the event will be reprised on February 8 at 10:00 a.m. at the Levis Center.
We invite you to join us for either celebration and ask that you help us plan by sending an RSVP.
