FRAMINGHAM – Wallace Nutting was an American renaissance man.
The late Framingham resident was a minister, photographer, furniture maker, preservationist, and the father of the Colonial Revival movement.
The Framingham History Center is hosting a presentation on April 15 at 7 p.m. This pre-recorded program will be available to watch on April 15 and you can pause, rewind, and re-watch to your heart’s content
From his factory in Framingham, Nutting produced prints and furniture meant to evoke “old New England,” which became must-have decorative items for the growing American middle class. His style influenced design, art, and architecture for half a century.
Linda Palmer, author of Wallace Nutting: Father of the Colonial Revival Movement, will share the highlights of a life well-lived.
After 30 years of research, Palmer has compiled a tremendous amount of material, images, and historical furniture that propel this book from a biography to a researcher’s guide to all things Nutting.
Tickets are $5 for Framingham History Center members and $10 for non-members.
Ticket sales will close at 6 p.m. on April 15.
