The Homestead Project Gallery Tour with Michael K. Komanecky

Dates: 
May 19, 2012
Times: 
Saturday, 1 p.m.
Location: 
Meet in museum lobby
The Homestead Project exhibition, on view March 24 through September 23, features the designs of ten architectural and architectural design firms that have been charged with creating a theoretical 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 Art Museum campus, architects, designers and their teams have designed a new imaginary “Farnsworth Homestead” on the current site, taking into consideration the surrounding museum block and current zoning codes. Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky will lead visitors through this dynamic and multi-faceted exhibition during a 30-minute gallery tour.
