Summer Author Series with Peter McMahon

June 17th, 4:00 pm

JFK Hyannis Museum

Join us for a captivating journey into modernist design and architectural history. Peter McMahon, Founding Director of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust, will lead an exploration into the restoration plans for 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐥 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐮𝐞𝐫’𝐬 𝐢𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜 𝐖𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐭 𝐬𝐮𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞.

Plans are now underway to restore the summer home of Marcel Breuer, one of the 20th century’s most influential designers. The house’s content include the families art, books and examples of Breuer’s mass produced furniture as well and custom pieces he made for the house. It also includes thousands of never-seen photographs of Wellfleet’s cultural life from the 1960’s through the1980s. This talk will explore the house, the process of preserving it and the story the photographs reveal.

Peter McMahon will be signing copies of Cape Cod Modern, which he co-wrote with Christine Cipriani.
