Lecture: “Forever Young: How Endless Possibility as an American Birthright Shapes Our Cities and Our Minds”

November 29, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$5 – $10

Holly Brubach—a trustee of PHLF, member of Carnegie Museum of Art’s board, author, screenwriter, design consultant, and Distinguished Daughter of Pennsylvania—will present an illustrated lecture with images from Paris, Milan, Venice, and New York.
“Cities are constantly editing themselves,” she says. “In Europe, the continued survival of old buildings serves as an everyday reminder of history, as people tread the same sidewalks and inhabit the same rooms as generations of others before them. How can we in America incorporate the past into our contemporary urban environments? Having spent years abroad as a resident of other cultures, I’m convinced that preservation can help us transform our attitudes as a society and our lives as individuals.” Join us for this tour of architectural landmarks and discussion about the bedrock principles that underlie them.

This lecture is part of PHLF’s continuing series, “Architecture and Historic Preservation Abroad,” and is co-sponsored by Carnegie Museum of Art, The Heinz Architectural Center.

$5 PHLF and Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh members; $10 non-members

The event is limited to 175 people.
