Institutional architecture in Annapolis, a discussion and tour

| February 24, 2015 | 1 Comment

Chapel Dome USNAThe 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 upcoming lecture, “20th Century: Institutional Architecture,” will be held in the Conversation Room in Mellon Hall on March 1 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.

Sara Phillips, architect of the United States Naval Academy, and James W. Cheevers, senior curator of the United States Naval Academy Museum, will discuss the U.S. Naval Academy campus, followed by an optional walking tour of the Academy Yard, weather permitting.
