Out of the Shadows: John E. Brent, Architect
Thursday, November 2, 5:30 am–Thursday, November 30, 2017
During November, PBN will partner with curator Christine Parker, MA, local historian and Brent scholar, to have a special exhibition in the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library’s Central Library about the life of John E. Brent, Buffalo’s first African-American Architect. There will be an opening remarks on Thursday, November 2nd at 5:30 pm where Ms. Parker will introduce the exhibit and show her newly completed John E. Brent Documentary. For nearly five decades, John E. Brent designed dozens of religious and commercial structures for private clients, and countless pools, playgrounds, and landscapes as a landscape architect for the City of Buffalo. As a draftsman, architect, and landscape architect, John E. Brent has left a lasting imprint on our historic built environment and this exhibit will bring those achievements to light.
If you can't make it on November 2nd, we invite you to view the exhibition during normal library hours the rest of the month. This exhibition is made possible by support from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and First Niagara Foundation.
