“Early Women of Architecture in Maryland” Exhibition & Reception
October 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Baltimore Architecture Foundation presents an “Early Women of Architecture in Maryland” exhibit at the Opera House and” Poldi Hirsh – The Artist Eye of an Early Modern Architect” exhibit at Concord Point Coffee in Havre de Grace. The Exhibit runs October 1 to November 30. Reception on Thurs., October 11 from 6-8pm.
The Early Women of Architecture in Maryland exhibit delves into the history of 12 women who contributed their design talent to the built environment in Maryland at a time when few women were in the profession. The traveling exhibit was developed under the guidance of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation with assistance from the Baltimore Chapter of American Institute of Architects (AIABaltimore) and has been showcased in numerous jurisdictions across the State.
One of the women featured, Poldi Hirsch, was the first women corporate owner in AIABaltimore and a resident of Havre de Grace. She designed numerous mid-century modern buildings in the area. A special complementary exhibit of her artwork and architectural drawings will highlight her pioneering legacy.
