Saturday August 2, at the Chapel Hill Museum from 9am to 4pm there will be a very cool sounding discussion about Modern Architecture in Chapel Hill. Sponsored by The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill.
I have to say that new Preservation Society Director Ernest Dollar is sure making old stuff exciting. Even to this jaded hipster! (I am a bit of history nerd actually…)
Thanks for the heads up Sally! via GreeneSpace
Atomic Age Architecture Symposium. Explore Chapel Hill’s modernist architecture of the 1950s-1970s. The sleepy college town became a center for avant garde designers creating a collection of radically different homes. Dail Dixon, George Smart, and Cathleen Turner will discuss modernism in Chapel Hill and what can be done to preserve these treasures. Tickets are $15 and symposium will be held in the Chapel Hill Museum. Call 942-7818 to reserve tickets.
