Architecture as Art: A Conversation with the Architects of the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art


Location: Raclin Murphy Museum of Art

Although the galleries of the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art hold over one thousand works of art, they, in turn, are contained within a larger work of art—the Museum building itself. This event will explore the design process and artistic choices made by the design firm of Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) to combine classical inspiration with contemporary voices. The architects’ vision has been realized in a structure that has the power to shape individual visitors’ experiences with single works of art and broad ideas that cut across time and place, and the University’s campus as a whole.

Join us for a special evening at the Museum to learn about the design process and the artistic choices that created the Museum, an institution that will serve campus and the community for generations. Architects Melissa DelVecchio ’94, Tony McConnell ’06, and Kasey Tilove ‘12 of RAMSA will discuss this extraordinary addition to the University’s campus.

This event will be live-streamed (link forthcoming). For those attending in person, you are welcome to a reception immediately following the event.

Co-sponsored by the School of Architecture and the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art.
