In honor of National Preservation Month, architect Steve Wiser will present a program about Arthur Loomis, an architect who lived in Southern Indiana. His firm, Clark & Loomis designed most of the Carnegie Libraries in this area, including New Albany’s Carnegie Library. Our building served as New Albany’s library from 1904 – 1969. In 1971 it became the Floyd County Museum, which was re-named the Carnegie Center for Art & History in 1999. Arthur Loomis was also the architect for Louisville’s Speed Art Museum, which was constructed in 1927. This event is free but registration is required (812-944-7336). You are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch; drinks are provided. Sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
