Love-A-Landmark Party at the Sternberger Artists Center

November 9, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Sternberger Artists Center, 712 Summit Avenue
Greensboro, NC 27405 United States

Join us for an exceptional evening to celebrate the arts and architecture at the Sternberger Artists Center. The Sigmund Sternberger House on Summit Avenue is the finest Italian Renaissance Revival style residence in Greensboro. It was built for Sternberger (1887-1964), treasurer of the massive Revolution Cotton Mill, in 1926. Harry Barton, one of the city’s most prominent early twentieth-century architects, deftly handled its design, combining deep red bricks, green tiles, and limestone Venetian openings and arcades into an elegant villa that stands out even among the grand Queen Anne/Colonial Revival and Neoclassical Revival style dwellings of the locally-designated Summit Avenue/Charles B. Aycock Historic District.
