Columbus, Indiana: Midwest Architecture Gem - Section A

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic (This section includes trip to Columbus) How can a small town of 50,000, in the middle of nowhere, have more significant modern architecture by world famous architects than almost any city in the United States? This is due to the vision and wealth of J. Irwin Miller, second CEO of Cummins, Inc., who directed the Cummins Foundation to pay the fees of architects for public buildings. In this study group, we will study the history of Columbus, Indiana. We will also examine how one visionary person can significantly impact the cultural and economic development of a small city by leaving a legacy of great architecture. We will study the architects and the buildings they designed for Columbus and elsewhere. Then, we will visit Columbus as a group on May 29th – 31st. Study group members will be responsible for paying their own expenses of approximately $600 – 700 per person. Contact or for an itinerary and breakdown of costs prior to registering for this study group. Attendance on tours is limited. Guests may not attend with OLLI members. This is a 7 week study group; second 7 weeks.
