Save the date! ARLIS-SE will host its annual conference and business meeting in Birmingham, AL from Thursday, November 6 – Friday, November 7, 2014. Attendees are welcome to arrive Wednesday evening and stay through Saturday with our group discount at the historic Tutwiler Hotel located in downtown Birmingham.
As 2014 celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, it is the perfect opportunity to visit Birmingham, AL site of the pivotal April and May 1963 acts of protest. Over the past 25 years, Birmingham has undergone a cultural and economic resurgence with adaptive reuse projects and the revitalization of former warehouses and downtown spaces, many of which we’ll explore on a walking tour led by a local architect. Considered the cultural capital of Alabama, Birmingham boasts museums, galleries, farm-to-table restaurants, and local craft breweries. The Tutwiler Hotel, a National Historic Landmark and our conference headquarters, is within short walking distance to several sites on our itinerary: the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Kelly Ingram Park, Birmingham Art Museum, Linn-Henley Research Library, and the Central Library. Hope to see you there!
