Florence Griswold Museum

Old Lyme, CT

 The Florence Griswold Museum is the home of American Impressionism. Since 2016, STIMSON has been working with the Museum to implement a transformative landscape Master Plan that focuses on an expanded interpretation of the property’s history as a farm, while simultaneously restoring several edge ecologies for wildlife and birding habitat. Landscape experiences will be choreographed along a new Artists’ Trail, providing visitors with a more authentic sense of the Lyme Art Colony painters’ interaction with the land and the site’s agrarian past.
