Chicago modernist-architect Edward Dart designed numerous buildings throughout Chicago and its suburbs, including about a dozen homes, and one church, St. Matthew United Church of Christ, in Wheaton.
 
Come hear Matt Seymour, who has written extensively on Edward D. Dart, present on the architect’s life, design philosophy, Mid-Century religious design, and his churches, both historically and in their current status. The lecture will be followed with a short discussion on Dart’s residential design in Wheaton. Come with your questions and information about Dart, as more documentation remains to be gathered about this under-appreciated architect.
 
Matt Seymour works as an assistant project manager for Central Building & Preservation LP in Chicago. Matt earned a MS in Historic Preservation from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he completed his thesis on Edward Dart. He has written articles for the Association for Preservation Technology Bulletin, the Chicago Modern: More than Mies website, and he has been quoted in Preservation magazine.

The event is free and open to the public. Meet in the main church sanctuary (addition) at St. Matthew United Church of Christ. Light refreshments will be served, followed by an optional tour of the church.
