I am so excited again this year about Evergreen’s fifth annual The House Beautiful lecture series. This year’s series explores nationalism in design. The illustrated talks will take place in Evergreen’s Bakst Theatre, followed by receptions and book signings with the speakers. I am especially excited to finally meet lecturer John Tackett, The Devoted Classicist, whose blog I’ve been following since its inception. Here’s this year’s schedule:
March 28: Hermes Mallea, "Great Houses of Havana: A Century of Cuban Style"Join architect and author Hermes Mallea for an exploration of the greatest residences of Havana, celebrating 100 years of creativity, design, and style that made the city “the Paris of the Caribbean.”
April 25: John J. Tackett, "A Devotion to Classicism: The Enduring Popularity in Decorative Arts"Presenting examples instilled by a tradition two thousand years old, architect, interior designer and blogger, John J. Tackett, will explore this passion for the antique and discuss why classicism endures as a major source of residential inspiration.
May 16: Donald Albrecht, "The American Style: Colonial Revival and the Modern Metropolis"Join Donald Albrecht, Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of the City of New York, for an exploration of the Colonial Revival from a national perspective, and the movement’s impact on New York City—the ultimate modern metropolis.
