On Saturday, May 4, Schütz will follow up his lecture with a guided walking tour of Montpelier, meeting at the library at 10:00 am.

Schütz 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.
