The Homestead Project exhibition, on view March 24 through September 23, features the designs of ten architectural firms who have been charged with creating a home for a growing family in 2012, loosely modeled on the Farnsworths of 1849: a successful businessman, his wife and three young children. Balancing elements of privacy with public exposure for a home situated in 2012 on what is now the Farnsworth Museum campus, architects and their teams have designed a new “Farnsworth Homestead” on the current site, taking into consideration the surrounding museum block and current zoning codes. Assistant Curator, Jane Biano, will lead visitors through this dynamic and multi-faceted exhibition during a 30-minute gallery tour.
