Thank you to Tom Lyden/FOX 9 for your valuable reporting, shedding light and providing a local angle in the current review of the complex legacy of architect Philip Johnson – including his prewar pro-Nazi and fascist beliefs. Johnson’s famous works include Minneapolis’ IDS Center.

Now with this historical record which Mr. Lyden and other experts researched and developed, what do we do with it? We hope to continue the conversation in an upcoming webinar.
