Description

Portland's first house of worship was built in 1850 – five years after the city’s founding. Since that time many of the city’s most important architects and artisans have contributed to our rich assortment of sacred spaces, serving a variety of faiths from around the world.

 

Please join us for this brand new lecture as AHC education committee member, tour docent, and frequent presenter John Doyle discusses the architectural styles, interiors, and decorative arts of Portland’s sacred spaces from the city’s founding to the present. Along the way you’ll learn how architects, such as Warren Williams, Joseph Jacobberger, and Pietro Belluschi made significant contributions to this legacy. And of course, no program about Portland’s sacred spaces would be complete without including the Povey Brothers Studio and their famous stained glass windows.

This lecture program is held at the Architectural Heritage Center - 701 SE Grand Avenue

Seating is Limited. Pre-Registration is Highly Recommended.
