Presenting Art: The Importance of the Vessel | May 23, 2019 | 6:00 PM | Integrated Science Center, Room 1221 | David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art

Art Museums loom large on the cultural landscape, and when new ones are built, they are important opportunities to present the current state of architectural and design thinking.  In this lecture, we will explore recently constructed museums in America, including smaller museums on college campuses and larger institutions that serve as flagship centers of civic engagement in urban settings.  We will also check in on the current status of our own quest for a new museum at William & Mary.

 

Member sign up begins May 2. Non-member sign up begins May 9.

 

Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff.

 

Non-Members: $5

Problems with the Prescription: The Reality of Regional Modern Architecture in America in the 1920s and 1930s March 12, 2019 at 6:00 PM, Tucker Hall, Tucker Theater | David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art

With the International Style exhibition of 1932, the Museum of Modern Art plunged into the discourse regarding modern architecture.  In this lecture, we will reflect on the efforts of MoMA to “educate” American designers about international architectural trends, while simultaneously missing the rich flavors of modernism that were thriving regionally in the United States.
