Sternberger Artist Center
712 Summit Avenue
Join us for an exceptional evening to celebrate the arts and architecture at the Sternberger Artists Center. The Sigmund Sternberger House at 712 Summit Avenue is the finest Italian Renaissance Revival style residence in Greensboro. It was built for Sternberger (1887-1964), treasurer of the massive Revolution Cotton Mill, in 1926. Harry Barton, one of the city’s most prominent early twentieth-century architects, deftly handled its design, combining deep red bricks, green tiles, and limestone Venetian openings and arcades into an elegant villa that stands out among the grand Queen Anne/Colonial Revival and Neoclassical Revival style dwellings of the Summit Avenue/Charles B. Aycock Historic District.
The home was donated in 1971 from the Sigmund Sternberger Foundation. Originally, it housed the offices and member agencies of the United Arts Council (now ArtsGreensboro). The house was inscribed to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Today, the Sternberger Artists Center includes 16 studio spaces that are home to a variety of artists, including writers, painters, photographers and more.
Our evening will include an exploration of the historic residence, along with wine and light refreshments. Artists’ work will be on view and available for purchase. This is one of many tours across the city in celebration of Preservation Greensboro’s 50th Anniversary in 2016!
Admission for this fundraiser is $25 per person, with all proceeds directed to the mission of Preservation Greensboro.
