The Middlesex County Museum & Historical Society is pleased to bring “Architecture’s Hidden Secrets: A Presentation by Calder Loth” to Dozier’s Regatta Point Marina (137 Neptune Lane in Deltaville, Virginia) on Sunday, March 10 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Loth, retired Senior Architectural Historian of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources where he was employed for 40 years and still serves part-time, will present a program about his book, “Lost Virginia: Vanished Architecture of the Old Dominion.”
The book “Lost Virginia” is a record of more than 300 of Virginia’s Architectural Heritage structures that address domestic, civil, religious and commercial buildings.
Tickets are $25 and include appetizers with a cash bar.
Loth currently teaches architectural literacy for the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art in New York and other venues. He is also vice president of the Center for Palladian Studies in America and a member of the Virginia Art and Architectural Review Board. His publications include “The Virginia Landmarks Register,” “Virginia Landmarks of Black History” and “Preserving a Legacy.” In addition, Loth is the author of numerous articles relating to historic preservation and classical architecture.
In 2008, he was the first recipient of the Secretary of the Interior’s Preservation Award for service to state preservation programs.
In 2010-2011, Loth served as a co-curator of the Royal Institute of British Architecture’s exhibition “Palladio and His Legacy, A Transatlantic Journey,” and was the author of Congressional Resolution No. 259 honoring the 500th anniversary of Palladio’s birth.
