Closing Reception for American Beauty: The Opulent Pre-Depression Architecture of Detroit

 Invest now in the exquisite photographs of Detroit’s historical architecture. Meridian Gallery is pleased to announce the last week of its American Beauty: The Opulent Pre-Depression Architecture of Detroit. This exhibition is the first time that Philip Jarmain’s large-format photographs have been shown.

The exhibition, comprised of eighteen vivid images printed with archival pigment and mounted on Dibond, will travel to a number of international civic institutions. Each photograph is an edition of five or ten and is available for collection in up to three sizes.  

American Beauty has become an international phenomenon. Renowned critics and publications have written about the spectacular exhibition. These include Kenneth Baker of the San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlantic, Casa Vogue, The Huffington Post, Wired.com, Monocle, and the Daily Mail in London, among many others.

Sunday, October 20, is the last day to view American Beauty in San Francisco. Meridian Gallery is hosting an open house reception to view again, at 2:00pm, the individual works and to converse with others. Seize the opportunity to invest in this magnificent project that both captures and shares a story of Detroit and its architecture.

Meridian Gallery is pleased to have presented these photographs, curated by Sheeka Arbuthnot, as an opportunity to consider the historical and current state of Detroit as an American city.
