“Miami Modern Lost and Found” is the topic of a lecture by Beth Dunlop, editor in chief of Modern Magazine, at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 19, in the Herald-Tribune Community Room, 1741 Main St., Sarasota.

Presented by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation, the lecture will focus on Miami’s modernist architectural legacy from Art Deco through the midcentury, and how it was “almost lost, then found, and the threats this legacy still faces.”

The lecture is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. Admission is $10 for SAF members, $15 for nonmembers and free to full-time students. Register and pay online at
