Carl Rutberg Designs Tie and Scarf for Frederic Church’s Olana

Carl Rutberg, adjunct professor of American History, through his other career as creative director and founder of Lindman New York, has created a line of ties and scarves for Olana, the former home of the Hudson River School painter Frederic Church (1826–1900). The national historic landmark, located in Hudson, New York, was designed by Church himself, and was inspired by his travels abroad, especially the Middle East.

“Olana was looking for a company that understood and could capture the intricate details and the subtle shades of Olana and Church’s work,” Rutberg said about why Lindman New York was selected to create work for its museum store. Purchases from the museum store support the Olana Partnership, which operates Olana and preserves and restores the site.
