Architectural Lecture Series Honors Maximilian Godefroy

Homewood House Museum this spring offers the fourth in its annual architectural lecture series, Baltimore's Great Architects: Maximilian Godefroy and the French Connection in Baltimore's Neoclassical Architecture.

Architectural historian Mark Reinberger will discuss Godefroy during three separate hour-long lectures at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, Thursday, May 6, and Tuesday, May 11, in Remsen Hall Auditorium on Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Reinberger, associate professor of architectural history at the University of Georgia, will examine Godefroy's prominent Maryland works. Reinberger is the author of the chapter on the Baltimore Exchange in the Architectural Drawings of Benjamin Henry Latrobe and conducted research with the late Robert Alexander, author of The Architecture of Maximilian Godefroy. Godefroy designed some of the most sophisticated buildings and monuments in Federal Baltimore, most notably the Battle Monument, St. Mary's Chapel and the First Unitarian Church.

Homewood's fourth annual architectural lecture series is sponsored by Homewood House Museum, the Department of the History of Art at The Johns Hopkins University, and the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. The series is underwritten in 2004 by Mr. and Mrs. Vernon H.C. Wright, the Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Charitable Funds and William Polk Carey. A reception in the wine cellar of Homewood House will immediately follow each lecture. Admission is $8 for Homewood House members, Johns Hopkins affiliates and AIA, BAF and ASID members; $10 for the general pubic. Parking is available at the University Baptist Church directly across Charles Street. To make reservations or for more information call 410-516-8639 or visit www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
