Preservation50: putting people at the forefront of preservation in the 21st century

| May 12, 2016

Annapolis Seal FlagMayor Michael Pantelides invites you to a special gathering hosted by the Annapolis Heritage Commission recognizing the 2016 Living Landmarks honorees: Annapolis Rotary Club, Annapolis Rotary Foundation, the Community Health Center of Parole, David Porter Fogle, and Anna E. Greenberg.

The special guest speaker will be David Brown, Executive Vice President and Chief Preservation Officer of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Mr. Brown will address how places change as they are imbued with meaning, memory and stories. Preservation in the 21st century, if it is to be successful, has to show how people and places in the past have shaped us, but these connections must also provide relevancy in the present day and hope for the future. Putting people at the forefront of preservation demonstrates that we must embrace continuity and change to do our work in the 21st century. The presentation of the 2016 Living Landmarks awards is in recognition of the individuals and organizations in Annapolis who demonstrate a sustained commitment to protecting and promoting our cultural heritage.

David J. Brown leads the National Trust’s comprehensive preservation efforts, with four decades of experience in working to save historic places and build thriving, livable communities. He oversees the Trust’s National Treasure campaigns which help protect some of America’s most significant and threatened historic places. Today, he serves on the executive committee of the International National Trusts Organisation (INTO) and represents the National Trust on the Board of Trustees of the National Main Street Center.

This is a free event to be held at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts
