The show features twenty alumnae, each presenting one of her projects. Exhibitors represent fifteen graduating classes and six decades, starting with Eunice Campbell Purdy, class of 1939—the first woman to become a member of the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects—and ending with Dana Nemes Ragouzeos, class of 2004. Fourteen of the participating exhibitors earned professional degrees in landscape architecture. This includes Eunice Purdy ’39, whose first degree in landscape architecture comes from Smith. It was, in fact, the listing of a major in landscape architecture in the course catalog that attracted Eunice to Smith in the first place.

Many of the graduates from the 1960s and 1970s hadn’t even heard of the landscape architecture profession until after they left Smith. For several exhibitors landscape architecture is a second career. There are attorneys and MBAs among the group. Twelve of the exhibitors majored in either art or art history. This includes one major in architecture and the one landscape architecture major. There are three science majors, two government majors, an English major, and a Hispanic studies major. However, a common theme among all the exhibitors is a love of nature, art, and design. All seem genuinely thrilled to have found such a great profession.
