Exploring American Architecture in Annapolis

AN_Chase_Lloyd_House.jpgThe 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.

Mitchell Gallery architect Chip Bohl, principal architect of Bohl Architects, will moderate the series and lecture on 19th-century architecture. Other lecturers include: Marcia M. Miller, chief, Office of Research, Survey and Registration, Maryland Historical Trust, and author of "Architecture in Annapolis: A Field Guide"; Sarah Benson, architectural historian; Donna Ware, senior vice President of Preservation at Historic Annapolis; Sara G. Phillips, architect of the United States Naval Academy; James W. Cheevers, senior curator of the United States Naval Academy Museum; and Steve Ziger, partner of Baltimore-based Ziger/Snead architecture studio.
