Scenes from the CFAS gala


The Center for Architecture Sarasota held a gala this evening to celebrate the opening of the McCulloch Pavilion on South Orange Avenue in Sarasota. The 1960 building was designed by Joe Farrell and renovated for use as headquarters for CFAS, the University of Florida's CityLab Sarasota and the local AIA chapter's office.

The exhibit and building will host a free open house for the public from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. At 5, Farrell will present a lecture about architecture and his career, followed by a Q&A with me.
