March 3, 2018Edmonds, Washington
Join co-sponsors Docomomo WEWA, Historic Seattle, and the Cascadia Art Museum on Saturday, March 3, 2018, to learn about Michigan’s mid-century Modern design legacy and the regional Northwest aesthetic covering the period 1948-1966.

The program takes place in Edmonds. We begin at 10:00 AM with a lecture at Edmonds City Hall (121 5th Ave N, Edmonds, WA 98020). The presentation will end by 11:30 AM.

Brian Conway, Michigan’s State Historic Preservation Officer, will discuss the influential and progressive design professionals working in Michigan at mid-century, some of whom had ties to the Pacific Northwest. The Michigan Modern Project documents and promotes the outstanding architectural heritage of the state.

At NOON and 1:00 PM (attendees will choose one time slot--Historic Seattle staff will contact registrants to confirm), David Martin, Curator of the Cascadia Art Museum, will lead tours of the museum’s Northwest Design at Mid-Century exhibition which showcases a variety of works and objects that define the Northwest aesthetic at mid-century. The museum is located in a former 1960s-era Safeway supermarket that has been transformed into a regional arts museum along the Edmonds waterfront (190 Sunset Avenue, Edmonds, WA 98020, one half-mile from Edmonds City Hall).

Admission to the Cascadia Art Museum is included in the registration cost. Lunch and travel between the lecture and tour are on one’s own.

Cost: $45 general public / $35 for members of Historic Seattle, Cascadia Art Museum, and Docomomo US; and those on Docomomo WEWA’s email list (includes museum admission).
