Art Deco – A Regional Perspective

July 12 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Art Deco a regional perspective

The Australian Institute of Architect’s Country Division is heading to Leeton to present Art Deco: a regional perspective.

This seminar explores Art Deco and Modernism in Australia and in the regional city of Leeton in the NSW Riverina. Developed following the establishment of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, Leeton’s layout was designed by Walter Burley Griffin.

Attend this seminar to learn about these movements in Australia, the Griffins’ involvement in Griffith and Leeton layouts, the mainstreet character of regional town centres and public spaces, and discover Leeton’s Art Deco style and significant buildings on a walking tour.

SPEAKERS
