Gallery Talk - At the Athenaeum

Guest Curator Michael J. Lewis will give a gallery talk on the current exhibition Face & Form: The Art and Caricature of Frank Furness.

Louis Sullivan called Furness the man who made "buildings out of his head." For a new and fascinating glimpse inside that head, the Athenaeum presents this exhibition of Furness sketchbooks. Dating from the 1860s through the 1890s these sketches, which include buildings, people, and animals galore, provide a rare opportunity to comprehend the world as Furness saw it. Preserved by several lines of the architect's descendants, this show will be the first time these items have been publicly exhibited. 

RSVP is required due to limited space: sgallo@PhilaAthenaeum.org or 215-925-2688
