The City: Beautiful | Gustafson Guthrie Nichol at The Cleveland Mall
March 24, 2015 - Tomorrow evening is the opening reception for the exhibit The City: Beautiful | Gustafson Guthrie Nichol at The Cleveland Mall at the Knowlton School’s Banvard Gallery. The 7:00pm opening reception is timed to follow the Baumer Lecture Seriespresentation by Jennifer Guthrie and Shannon Nichol, who are the Spring 2015 Glimcher Distinguished Visiting Professors.
The exhibit is a collaboration between GGN and Landscape Architecture students at Ohio State University. The show documents GGN’s work on The Cleveland Mall and attempts to situate and contextualize The Cleveland Group Plan within the larger canon of the City Beautiful Movement – an urban design movement that had major ramifications for many American cities at the turn of the century. Ohio State student drawings included in the show capture and analyze the physical changes that have occurred within the boundaries of the Group Plan over the last century.
The Gallery is located on the first floor of Knowlton Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University. It is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm and admission is free. The exhibit runs through April 10.
