This week, the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art announces the winners of the New England chapter's second annual Bulfinch Awards. These five examples of the classical in art and architecture show a refined appreciation of how the principles of classicism beautify and ennoble the past and the future. This region of the nation, so graced by the hand of history on its heritage, appreciates the new classical revival more, perhaps, than her sister regions. With this awards program the chapter takes pride in its role as a leading proponent of a movement that seeks to return art and architecture to their central influence on the quality of civic life in the region and the country.
The winners of this year's Bulfinches will be honored on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at the Massachusetts Statehouse designed by Charles Bulfinch, whose work transformed New England's capital into a city whose look would increasingly reflect its greatness. The keynote speaker this year will be Judge Douglas Woodlock, a U.S. district court judge in Boston since 1986 who helped develop design guidelines for the U.S. court system. The victorious entries will be on display in the Statehouse's Doric Hall for five days, Nov. 28-Dec. 2.
