CARNEGIE MELLON EVENT CALENDAR

Posner Center Exhibit Opening

Dec 7, 2012
5:00 PM  - 8:00 PM
Posner Center


The Posner Center hosts an opening reception for its new exhibit, "Ancient and Picturesque Edifices: English Country Houses," by Posner Center intern Julie Bowman.
This exhibit explores Victorian England's interest in medieval manors as destinations for day-trips, as spaces for cultivating a national history, and objects for debate about historic preservation and restoration. The exhibit asks how a culture narrates its buildings as objects worth preserving. Central to the exhibit is S. C. Hall's illustrated text, "The baronial halls, and ancient and picturesque edifices of England." The exhibit runs through April 2013.
