Pattern Books: Printed Precedents in American Architecture 7:00 PM
Pattern Books: Printed Precedents in American Architecture
Books, serial publications, and advertisements play an outsize role in the transmission of architectural ideas and innovations in America. Since the first Georgian-inspired houses of the 18th century appeared in colonial settlements, Americans have been using printed sources. Often grafted onto deeper traditional building practice and locally available materials, the result is a creative and distinct architecture that influenced housing, civic buildings, and religious buildings up to the Second World War. Join us as noted architectural historian and teacher Janet W. Foster explores the role of pattern books, particularly in New Jersey’s buildings.

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition
October 3, 2018 - January 5, 2019 New Jersey’s history includes enslavement of African Americans and existence of free black communities. Black and white residents either helped each other or stood in the way of equality and equity for all. At times, the fate of the black and white community was “tied” to each other. The “ties that bind” us together as a community can be tight enough to encourage cooperation, or too tight, leading to conflict. Explore how these ties existed and changed over time in Morris County and New Jersey and consider how those ties manifest now. Exhibit will be in the Library's F.M. Kirby Gallery  Read more...
