View the film “Sketches of Frank Gehry” in the Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium. A discussion led by members of the Lincoln chapter of the American Institute of Architects will follow.

Directed by his friend Sydney Pollack, “Sketches of Frank Gehry” investigates the working practice of a man who is perhaps the most famous architect of our time, the designer of stunning museums including the Guggenheim Bilbao. Beginning with Gehry‚Äôs own original sketches for each major project, the film explores his process of turning these evanescent, abstract drawings into tangible, three-dimensional form: finished buildings of titanium and glass, concrete and steel, wood and stone.

“Building the Modern” is a collaboration between the Sheldon Museum of Art and the Lincoln AIA. This exciting series of programs explores the impact of museums and modernism on our lives. Tuesday nights in July, we’ll screen award-winning movies on important museum architects. The series culminates in a walking tour of downtown Lincoln in which we’ll examine those architects’ works up close and assess modernism’s continuing power to shape our built environment.
