The Museum's Friends of Historic Houses present the inaugural program of the Friends of Historic Houses Lecture Series. The featured speaker is Dr. Richard Guy Wilson, Commonwealth Professor in Architectural History at the University of Virginia, and his program is entitled Creating an Architecture for the Young Republic: The Moses Myers House, the Virginia State Capitol, and Monticello.
Wilson's research and writing has focused on American architecture from the 18th to the 20th centuries. He has authored, co-authored or edited more than dozen books, and has served as an advisor and commentator for a number of television programs on PBS, C-SPAN, History Channel and A&E.
Wilson is widely hailed as an expert in the architectural work of Thomas Jefferson, and here's a 37-minute video of Wilson speaking on that topic at a meeting of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation.Import to Calendar Share
