Event description

Description

Evergreen Museum & Library's annual spring lecture series, The House Beautiful, presents a trio of illustrated talks by notable experts and authors in the fields of architecture, artistic design and decorative arts.

The 2018 series concludes on Wednesday, May 2, with a talk by Hermes Mallea, AIA. Mallea will present descriptions and photographs from his lates book, Havana Living Today: Cuban Home Style Now.

Havana Living Today presents a vibrant, creative, and forward-looking city through the lens of an eclectic collection of domestic interiors that contradict the cliched images of dilapidated palazzos and 1950s-era cars. Mallea presents an authentic Cuban style developed in spite of scarcities, elevating recylcing and repurposing, and melding the international style with uniquely Cuban art and design. Each of the interiors asserts the homeowners' personality, some presenting family continuity that survived the Cuban Revolution, others reflecting recent reforms that legalize real estate transactions and allow new entrepreneurial activities.

Talks are at 6:30 p.m. in the Bakst Theatre with a book signing and reception to follow in the Far East Room.

*Each lecture fulfills 1 Learning Unit of AIA Continuing Education Credit.
