HISTORIC PRESERVATION REGIONAL WORKSHOP
Friday, June 7th – Saturday, June 8th, 2013
8:30 am – 5 p.m.
Michigan Historic Preservation Network invites you to attend a 2-Day workshop on the historic preservation of homes and small commercial buildings.
Most owners of older and historic homes and small commercial buildings want to maintain and preserve their properties’ historic character, but often don’t know how. Additionally, these same owners want to boost their energy conservation and need to understand lead-based paint hazards. If you are such an owner, come and meet with preservation professionals who will discuss these challenges and offer information and demonstrations to help you on your way. This primer to historic preservation will give you the basics and a framework from which to begin your projects that will result in a well maintained building that showcases its historic character.
Who Should Attend: Homeowners, Small Commercial Building Owners, Building Managers
Where: Holland Public Safety Building, 89 West 8th Street – Holland, MI 49423
RSVP: Admission is only $20, but space is limited and participants must register in advance. For questions or to RSVP contact: email@example.com or call 517-371-8080.
This event is made possible through funding from the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.
Michigan Modern: Design that Shaped America
Michigan was an epicenter of modern design in postwar America. Architects Eero Saarinen and Minoru Yamasaki were instrumental in defining the look of the mid-century. Companies like Herman Miller and General Motors and designers Charles Eames, George Nelson, and Harley Earl, shaped the American dream and brought good design to the masses. Join us June 13-16, 2013, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan as we tell the Michigan Modern story through a symposium at the Cranbrook Educational Community and an exhibition at the Cranbrook Art Museum. Go to michiganmodern.org to register. Early bird registration is through May 22. Registration ends May 31.
