One Night Only! Monday, June 18th at 7:15 pm
Join Historic Denver and the Denver Film Society for a special screening of Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman. After the film we will discuss architecture and photography with Rich von Luhrte, retired President of RNL Design (now Stantec) and a member of the AIA College of Fellows (the AIA’s highest honor), and Frank Ooms, a former Architect turned Architectural Photographer based in Denver who artfully captures Denver’s many building forms from skyscrapers to historic homes. Our special guests will discuss their own experiences in the world of architecture and photography, Mr. Shulman’s career, and how his photographs brought the architectural field to the general public.
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, Visual Acoustics celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman, who passed away in 2009, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California’s modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.
Screening in partnership with Historic Denver.
