mitchellgalleryThe Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College will present a lecture series on Annapolis architecture from the 18th through 21st centuries. Led by local historians, architects, and scholars, the series addresses the question of how to “read” buildings by identifying style, design, and historical context. The lectures will be held in the Conversation Room in Mellon Hall on November 2, February 1, March 1, and June 7 at 2 p.m. Refreshments will follow each lecture. The cost is $30 per lecture, and admission is by ticket only. Walking tours in Historic Annapolis follow most lectures. Appropriate walking attire is recommended.

For tickets and more information, visit www.sjc.edu/mitchellgallery/architecturelectures or call 410-626-2556.

The initial lecture will include:

November 2 “18th Century: Architecture of Colonial America.” Marcia M. Miller, chief, Maryland Historic Preservation, Maryland Historical Trust, will discuss the Chase Lloyd House and Sarah Benson, author of the Hammond- Harwood House architectural tour, will discuss the Hammond-Harwood House with exclusive visits to each.
