Please note: this free event will be held on the Digital Programs portion of our website, our Facebook page, and our YouTube channel. The talk is part of our Fall Conference 2020.

In an exclusive video tour, Vermont State Curator David Schutz explores the architectural symbolism of our beautifully-restored capitol building, and visits a rural town hall: another Vermont civic structure that enables us to govern ourselves.

About David Schutz

David Schutz has served as Vermont’s State Curator since 1986, overseeing the restoration of the State House over the course of nearly three decades. In that capacity, he worked with Nancy Price Graff to write Intimate Grandeur: Vermont’s State House, and he continues to interpret the building to a large, diverse audience with a renewed focus on civics, and a new exhibit installation celebrating Vermont’s indigenous people, the Abenakis. He has long been a student of Montpelier’s architectural history.
