Kahn <div style="text-align: left;"><strong>On the Pursuit of Perfection: The Legacy Architecture of Louis I. Kahn</strong></div> <div style="text-align: left;"><strong><br /></strong><span>During the mid-century, globally renowned architect Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) envisioned the design for a chimerical arts campus where the Arts United Center and Fort Wayne Museum of Art presently sit. The Arts United Center, Kahn’s only theater and the only building that was ever realized from his designs of the campus, dramatically exemplifies his numerous pioneering methods. With this exhibition, we take an investigative look at his finalized, complete set of architectural blueprints; we discover the depth of Kahn’s intensive process that lasted almost fifteen years and culminated in a sublime artwork, the Arts United Center.</span></div> <div style="text-align: left;"> </div> <div style="text-align: left;">This exhibit runs April 29-October 15, 2017</div> <div style="text-align: left;"> </div> <div style="text-align: left;">Admission:  <div> <p>$8.00 &#8211; adults $6.00 &#8211; students and seniors $20.00 &#8211; families Free for all after 5pm on Thursdays<br />Special admission guests who provide an EBT card and a valid ID can enter the museum for $3 per person.
