Minimalist aesthetics have made a resurgence in recent years and you can see examples of mid-century modern design almost everywhere you look. Arthur Fehr & Charles Granger were some of the first architects to bring modernist architectural design to Central Texas post-World War II, and the Austin History Center, in conjunction with the Austin Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is proud to present a new exhibit to celebrate their work. The exhibit, Fehr & Granger, Architects — Austin Modernists, will be on display at the Austin Center for Architecture located at 801 West 12th Street, from August 15 to November 15, 2017.
To mark the opening of the exhibit there will be an evening reception on Tuesday, August 15th at 6:30 PM. The reception is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. A limited edition print inspired by the work of Fehr & Granger by Bobby Dixon of KLCTVE Design + Illustration will be available for purchase at the reception.
