Joseph Urban

I had the pleasure of viewing the Joseph Urban exhibit at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach a few weeks ago. You can see some of the piece on display, including rendering for Ziegfeld, Metropolitan Opera and Palm Beach Paramount, at this link The exhibit includes a piece of the ceiling mural from the Ziegfeld.

The book written by John Loring has even more wonderful material

If you have a good Internet connection you can see and hear John Loring’s lecture here: Alll the lectures this year were about architecture and are viewable on-line – The Architects Who Designed Palm Beach’s Iconic Buildings.
Last year I got to attend several events relating to the 2010 Whitehall Lecture Series – Popular Entertainment During the Gilded Age – which are still available on-line. Great coverage of the subject including Nikelodeon City: The Origins of the Movie Industry. See the lectures here:

Best Regards,
Dennis Wilhelm
