Through the Lens: Honoring the Architectural Legacy of Paul Revere Williams

Visual Through the Lens: Honoring the Architectural Legacy of Paul Revere Williams

Paul Revere Williams was the first licensed African American architect to work in the western region of the United States, designing buildings in the 1920s through the 1970s. His work in Nevada spans from the 1930s through the 1970s. Contemporary photographer, Janna Ireland, provides a poetic response to his prolific career through her ominous black and white photographs in the exhibition, Janna Ireland on the Architectural Legacy of Paul Revere Williams. Join us for a symposium featuring photographer Janna Ireland, the lead scholar of Williams' work, his granddaughter Karen E. Hudson, and historians Alicia Barber and Claytee White. Lunch to follow the symposium and is included with registration. Scholarships are available.
