Join the Queen Anne Historical Society and Historic Seattle for a talk on the life and residential work of one of Seattle’s most original artist-architects, Robert George Reichert, presented by Jeff Murdock.
Reichert embarked in sole practice in Seattle in 1953. The early house-studio on 3rd Ave West that he designed for himself, his mother and his pipe organ helps to convey his unconventional ideas about the meaning of architecture. Our program includes photographs, drawings, notes, and ephemera from the Reichert Collection at University of Washington Libraries Special Collections.
Join us for this FREE event on Wednesday, October 25, from 6:00 – 7:15 pm in the lower level of the Queen Anne Seattle Public Library. The attendance is limited to 78, first come, first served as no pre-registration is allowed. Please plan to arrive between 5:45-6:00 pm.
Jeff Murdock is the Preservation Advocacy Manager for Historic Seattle. He has served on the Seattle Landmarks Preservation board and currently sits on the King County Landmarks Commission.
