Florida Modern: Architecture of the Sunshine State at Mid-20th Century (1945-1975)
December 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In partnership with Gainesville Modern, the Matheson History Museum is excited to host historian and scholar Marty Hylton to discuss the history of Florida architecture from the mid-20th century and highlight some of the state’s most important and historic mid-century structures. This is the first program in a series of “Mod Talks” that Gainesville Modern will be hosting from December to their annual Gainesville Modern Week in March. The program coincides with the current exhibition, “Gainesville’s Modern Landmarks: Celebrating Our Mid-Century Architectural Past (1945-1975),” which Marty curated.
At the beginning of the program Marty will also briefly discuss the second phase of the Gainesville Mid-20th Century Cultural Resource Survey – a partnership of the City of Gainesville, Gainesville Modern, and the University of Florida’s Historic Preservation Program.
A reception, sponsored by Gainesville Modern, follows the presentation.
