The Life and Work of Augustus Welby Pugin

Join us on Thursday, November 21 at 7:00pm in DiGiovanni Hall as the great, great grandson of Augustus Pugin presents an illustrated program considering the life and work of 19th century British architect, Augustus Welby Pugin (1812-1852), a Catholic convert, who made the return of the Gothic style welcome throughout the world. In a working life of but 15 years, Pugin designed Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, six cathedrals, 60 churches, homes — and, everything inside them including altar plate, dinnerware, silverware, wallpaper, furniture, floor tile, and stained-glass windows. This talk is sure to delight those interested in religious history, architecture, the decorative arts, British history, and more.
