19:00 Dr. R. Guy Wilson
The Friends of Handley Regional Library Annual Meeting
May 15, 2013, 7:00 p.m., Handley Library Auditorium

The Handley Library and the American Renaissance in Architecture and Art

Presenter: Dr. Richard Guy Wilson, Architectural Historian and Commonwealth Professor in Architecture History at University of Virginia

According to Dr. Wilson, the Handley Library is an excellent example of a major transformation that took place in American art and architecture in the later 19th and 20th century. Spurred by the idea that the Italian Renaissance had sprung to life in the United States, Architects and artists created a lasting legacy of classically inspired designs.

This presentation will focus on the idea of an American Renaissance and how the Handley Library embodies its ideas.

The Friendís Annual Meeting is in honor of the first 100 years of The Handley Library.

A reception and book signing will follow the lecture.
