BOSTON, MA.- The Boston University Art Gallery (BUAG) and Historic New England present "Drawing Toward Home: Designs for Domestic Architecture from Historic New England." The exhibition features 100 drawings of houses selected from the rich collections of Historic New England. The drawings range in date from the late eighteenth through the twentieth centuries, depicting an array of domestic building types, from estates and modest single-family houses to summer cottages and typical Boston multi-family dwellings. The drawings document the development of the architectural profession in America.

"Drawing Toward Home" illustrates changes in taste and technology and presents many of the drawings as works of art. The exhibition includes pieces by both famous and little-known architects as well as houses designed in the Federal, Victorian, Arts and Crafts, and International styles. It features exterior elevations, plans, sketches, details, and highly finished, beautifully rendered drawings. In addition, there are drawings for landscape designs, outbuildings, fences and even a proposal for an elaborate birdhouse.

Historic New England is the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive regional heritage organization in the nation. We bring history to life while preserving the past for everyone interested in exploring the authentic New England experience from the seventeenth century to today. Historic New England owns and operates thirty-six historic homes and landscapes spanning five states. The organization shares the region’s history through vast collections, publications, public programs, museum properties, archives, and family stories that document more than 400 years of life in New England.
