Exhibition Reception - East Lansing Modern, 1940 -1970
This exhibition explores the local area's modern architectural design heritage in residential, commercial, public and religious buildings. From examples by internationally known architects to those who practiced solely in mid-Michigan, the modernist style represented a forward-looking approach to contemporary living. Prompted by the State Historic Preservation Office's "Michigan Modern" project (michiganmodern.org), this project offers an appreciation of East Lansing's architecture. The exhibition also considers the use of new technologies, modern designs for the home that were available locally, and contemporary art that was popularly collected by home owners. The exhibit is on display April 28 - Aug. 18, 2013.more information...
