Event Details

Designed in 1966 by acclaimed architect Edward Larrabee Barnes (1915-2004), with its library added in 1977 and Sweeney Chapel in 1987, Christian Theological Seminary (CTS) is the high modernist aesthetic distilled to a poetic geometry of light, transparency and reflection – as befits a seminary. I. U. Professor and former Art & Architecture Critic for The Indianapolis Star Steven Mannheimer calls it “Undoubtedly, the best modernist structure of this scale and contemplative purpose in the city, and among the finest in the nation.”

As the original Barnes building approaches its 50th anniversary in 2016, join Steve Mannheimer and CTS President Matthew Boulton for an evening that will celebrate this design landmark and its role as a meeting place for the community that surrounds it.
