The Cincinnati Preservation Association will host a two-day symposium entitled Preserving Modern Architecture in the Midwest on April 24-25. CPA Executive Director Paul Mueller tells our Stuart Holman that the event will be held at the historic, and recently renovated, Frederick and Harriet Rauh House in Woodlawn and will feature tours of the home and discussions of preservation efforts of modern architectural gems.

Artists and authors David and Barbara Day join Brian O’Donnell to talk about their new book of drawings and stories about our ever-changing city. Vanishing Cincinnati seeks to preserve some of the classic architecture and geography of this area as was seen from the 1800’s on in a unique and artistic way.
