Please join us on Thursday May 21 at 5:30 PM for a special APT-DVC reception and curators talk for the current "Feats of Clay: Philadelphia Brick & Terra Cotta" exhibition at the Harvey and Irwin Kroiz Gallery of the University of Pennsylvania Architectural Archives.

The exhibition traces the rise of the brick and terra cotta industry in Philadelphia and its far reaching influences on American architecture and building technology. The exhibition also seeks to raise the awareness and appreciation of the region’s wealth of historic brick and terra cotta architecture, as well as their relevance to contemporary sustainable design and the region's long craft tradition.

This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of the International Masonry Institute, Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 PA/DE, the Association for Preservation Technology - Delaware Valley Chapter, the Georgia Hencken Perkins Endowment, and the Friends of the Architectural Archives.
