CGD President, Ed Zeigler, AIA, moderated a panel of local architects and planners at the Greenville County Museum of Art during AIA Greenville’s Architecture Month. Ed and the panel examined the exhibition, A Portrait of Greenville, and interacted with the large audience on the topic, Shaping Greenville’s Skyline.

The Museum describes the exhibition as follows:

In 2010, you are invited to see Greenville, past and present, in paintings and photographs by major national and regional artists whose work has been brought together in A Portrait of Greenville, an exhibition that gathers together projects commissioned by the Greenville County Museum of Art over the past twenty-five years. Favorites by Stephen Scott Young are combined with new works by Andrew Lenaghan and John Moore, as well as Southern artists such as Edward Rice, William McCullough, and Tim Barnwell. The result is a selection of images both urban and rural, both modern and nostalgic, both historic and contemporary.

A Portrait of Greenville continues at the Greenville County Museum of Art through September 26, 2010.
