Community Event- Cleveland Restoration Society Community Luncheon
March 2, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Please join the Cleveland Restoration Society for their Community Luncheon on Thursday, March 2, 2017. The event will feature keynote speaker, Dr. Laurie Rush, Cultural Historian with the US Army.
Appreciation of the world’s diverse cultural heritage is one way to build a civil society on a global level. Protecting world heritage was the mission of the military’s Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, better known as the Monuments Men during WWII. These brave men and women risked their lives to secure ancient artifacts, master works, libraries and scientific collections. Mapping immoveable heritage sites and actively avoiding their destruction during armed conflict became a tenet of the US military.
Location: The Westin Cleveland Downtown, 777 St. Clair Avenue NE Cleveland
