Designing UrsulineMarch 3 – April 7, 2017
Join us for this exhibition celebrating the intersections among distinctive architecture from renowned architects, constructed landscapes, and the student experience that the Ursuline Sisters designed and adapted in their quest to educate women. Created and curated by students in Ursuline College Historic Preservation classes, “Designing Ursuline” takes viewers from the Ursulines’ first creation of Ursuline College in 1871 through their move to and expansion of the 1966 Midcentury Modern campus in Pepper Pike.
On March 24 at 7pm in the gallery we present Midcentury Modern + Beyond: A Panel Discussion.
Historic preservation advocate Dr. Ted Sande, AIA Emeritus, and two of the architects of Ursuline’s buildings – Peter Van Dijk and Jack Bialosky, Jr. – provide insight into the ideas behind and value of mid-century modernism.
