Arts Speaker Series: Mayberry Modernism

Please join the New York Carolina Club as it hosts a free virtual event with George Smart ‘83, founder and director of the award-winning non-profit organization NCModernist for a special presentation entitled Mayberry Modernism: North Carolina’s Modernist Architectural Legacy.

This one-hour talk showcases North Carolina’s surprisingly large collection of Modernist residences from the 1950’s up to the present and shows award-winning homes from past and present.

With bulldozers destroying mid-century Modernist houses like Breuer’s Geller House in New York, these livable works of art continue to be threatened by rising land prices and disinterested heirs.

George Smart HAIA is CEO and founder of NCModernist and host of the long-running podcast USModernist Radio, named by DWELL as the #2 architecture and design podcast. The nonprofit he founded has won 17 honors for leadership in historic preservation.
