COST: Non-members $5; members/students/Wake Forest University and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center employees free. Kenneth Zogry, PhD., author of histories of Vermont furniture and the Carolina Inn, will address the vibrant and influential modernist movement in art, architecture, and design that flourished in North Carolina during the mid-20th century. Fostered by institutions like Black Mountain College, the movement reflected aesthetically the dynamic tension in the state’s society and culture as it emerged to become a leader of the so-called “New South.”This presentation explores North Carolina’s Modernist Movement within the context of the era, discussing Modernist houses and public buildings by architects such as George Matsumoto, Eduardo Catalano, Milton Small, and Edward Loewenstein.
