    Film Screening: Windshield: A Vanished Vision (2016)

    Nightingale-Brown House
    Screening of Elissa Brown’s Windshield: A Vanished Vision (2016), a documentary about the modernist home that her grandparents, John Nicholas Brown and Anne Brown, commissioned Richard Neutra to design for them on Fishers Island in 1936.  The avant-garde home was Neutra’s most significant residential commission outside of Los Angeles and is a striking counterpoint to the Nightingale-Brown House.  Come and learn more about the family that endowed the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage and their surprising connection with modernist art and architecture.
    Light refreshments will be provided.
