Carlo Meeting Room

Event Details

While the city of Detroit was named for its riverfront site, it is the public spaces of the city -- populated with sculptures, murals and architectural masterpieces -- that have captured the imagination of artists, architects, urban planners, and civic leaders for centuries. Join art historian, Dr. Kawsky, for a virtual tour of Detroit's past, present, and future urban development, from the civic plans of Augustus Woodward and Eero Saarinen to the futuristic concepts for Detroit sites like the Dequindre Cut and the Packard Plant. This program coincides with an exhibition at Detroit's MOCAD (Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit), entitled "The Architectural Imagination," which runs Feb. 11 - April 16.
