Reception opens Loewenstein
exhibition at law school
Loewenstein's daughter, Jane Loewenstein Levy, and her husband, Richard, were on hand for the reception. Loewenstein is credited with bringing modernism to Greensboro. After serving in the army during World War II, Loewenstein designed homes, schools, churches, libraries, synagogues, factories and office buildings in the city. The Weaver Building opened as the Greensboro Public Library in 1965.
Art students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, under the guidance of UNCG professor Patrick Lee Lucas, designed the exhibition, which is just one component of a larger presentation titled "Close to Home: Edward Loewenstein and Modernism in Greensboro." The exhibition at Elon law features five major panels that are wall-mounted on the first floor of the Weaver Building, as well as a smaller display on the second floor. In addition, two portraits of Loewenstein hang near the building's signature feature, a spiral staircase just inside the main entrance.
Public tours of the law school and the exhibition are scheduled for 10 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 10. The exhibition will be open through Jan. 31.
