Exhibition on view: 2016 Booth Fellow Megan Peters (M.Arch. '16)
"A Tale of Two Cities: Representations of Havana, Cuba"
2016 Booth Fellowship recipient Megan Peters (M.Arch. '16) will present on her research funded by the Booth Fellowship, and her work will be featured in the Taubman College Gallery.
Peters' research explores the dichotomy between the dual realities of Havana: the perception of the city as being frozen in 1950s glamour and the burgeoning sense of a city on the brink of profound change through shaping its own image. Her travel study included a period of research examining the evolving aesthetics, perceptions, and politics of the city, planned in conjunction with 26 Julio, an important national holiday.
Exhibition opening presentation December 6, 2017 at noon in the Art & Architecture Auditorium, followed by an opening reception in the college gallery.
