“The Barn Raisers,” a documentary film telling the story of Midwestern barns, will be screened Friday, October 19, 7 pm at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
The 2017 documentary examines barns through the lens of architecture. What do barn settings, styles, methods and materials tell us about the people who built them, the life they lived, and the role of these vanishing country cathedrals played in the settling and building of a growing nation? Discussion following the documentary will be conducted by Stephen Stier, preservation builder, barnwright and Vice-President of Michigan Barn Preservation Network.
“The Barn Raiser” is free, and offered in conjunction with the GAAC’s exhibition agriCULTURE: Barnyards and Farmscapes. The exhibition receives partial support from the Michigan Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. agriCULTURE is on display through November 1.
