Middlebury College art and architecture professor emeritus Glenn Andres explores how the US asserted itself architecturally on the world stage around the turn of the twentieth century, a time of bold experiments, proud philanthropy, and a desire to rival the Old World in splendor.

The Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays series is held on the first Wednesday of every month from October through May in nine communities statewide, featuring speakers of national and regional renown. Talks in Essex Junction are held at Brownell Library unless otherwise noted.  The National Life Group Foundation and the Vermont Department of Libraries are the statewide underwriters of First Wednesdays. “America in a New, More Dangerous World” is underwritten by Vermont Council on World Affairs. Brownell Library is underwritten by Brownell Library Foundation; The Essex Agency Inc.; Kolvoord, Overton and Wilson; and RETN.
