About the Exhibition:

A(lbert) Hays Town (1903-2005) is likely the most recognized and beloved of the twentieth-century Louisiana architects. Town practiced for more than 70 years and was remarkably prolific, designing educational, office, commercial, and public buildings, and hundreds of private residences. A. Hays Town and the Architectural Image of Louisiana focuses on his residential architecture, on which he concentrated after the mid-1960s. The exhibition explores the historic sources and popular success of Town’s residential designs, which created recognizable images of a shared homeland.
This exhibition includes architectural models, blueprints, photographs, architectural drawings, and artifacts from A. Hays Town’s homes.

Copies of the book A. Hays Town and the Architectural Image of Louisiana by Carol McMichael Reese will be for sale at the Masur Museum of Art at $45 each, with proceeds benefiting both the Hilliard University Art Museum and the Masur Museum of Art.
