Free

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.
