Every Line is a Decision: The Life and Legacies of Peter Palumbo

The Edith Farnsworth House just opened its next two-year exhibition: “Every Line is a Decision: The Life and Legacies of Peter Palumbo.” This exhibit focuses on Lord Peter Palumbo’s ownership of the house, his restoration of it, and his life-long dedication to the arts and architecture.

Built in 1951 for Dr. Edith Farnsworth by Mies van der Rohe, Lord Palumbo continued the tradition of using the house as a weekend retreat. He steered the house, once known only in architectural circles, to international recognition through his connections in the international arts scene, but also through his constant belief that Mies changed the course of modern architecture, and that the Farnsworth House was his finest residential design ever realized. With photographs by William Zbaren, a contributing photographer to the New York Times, this exhibit offers new insight and appeal to those who know the house and those who have yet to discover it.

Attached is our press release and portfolio for review. We have more photos upon request, in both .jpeg and .tiff format. We would be happy to give you an interview and any additional info ahead of other media outlets if you are interested.

Thank you for your time.
