Jan 19 - Cleveland Goes Modern

On January 19, 2010 Anthony Hiti will discuss mid-century modern residential architecture in northeast Ohio from the period of 1930 to 1970.  The presentation will feature the work of several architects that introduced the innovative spirit of modernism to the Cleveland area and exposed the region to radical ideas in floor plan, facades void of historical ornamentation, new building materials and energy efficient design.  His presentation is based on the Cleveland Goes Modern exhibit organized by the Cleveland Artists Foundation in 2007 at the Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood, Ohio.  The program will begin at 7:15 p.m. at Kental at Oberlin's Heiser Auditorium.
