Mod Event in San Antonio August 6, 2011 George Nelson, O`Neil Ford, and HemisFair `68 Explored
Modsters from across Texas are invited to convene in San Antonio on August 6th for a full day of touring and interaction. Members from Mid Tex Mod, North Texas Mod and Houston Mod have been invited to attend. All three organizations are linked through DoCoMoMo US which is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit organization, a union of regional chapters that share its membersí knowledge of and enthusiasm for the Modern Movement, promote public interest in it through lectures and walking tours, and organize advocacy efforts to protect endangered sites and buildings. DoCoMoMo is an acronym for the Documentation and Conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the Modern Movement. The event will begin at 11:00 AM with a guided tour of the George Nelson exhibit currently on view at the McNay Art Museum. Nelson was a noted architect, writer, designer, and teacher whose ideas yielded numerous classics such as the family room in American interior design and furniture. This is the first comprehensive retrospective of Nelsonís work. Following lunch will be walking tours of the mid-century modern structures at the Trinity University campus and HemisFair `68 grounds plus neighborhood tours all with noted architectural historian Stephen Fox as our guide. Drive yourself (or carpool with a fellow mod-enthusiast), pay your admission fee at McNay ($5.00) and for lunch at La Gloria/the Culinary Institute of America. Schedule and more details to follow. There is still time to join in. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to check your membership status and to let us know the number in your party. We hope to see you in San Antonio!
