BUILT TO IMPRESS:
Columbus, Indiana - City Of Architecture & Brown County Artists' Colony
October 18-21, 2015
One of America's best displays of modern architecture awaits you in Columbus, Indiana, which knows how to blend small-city hospitality with modern style. From Henry Moore's Large Arch to Eliel Saarinen's First Christian Church, Columbus is filled with more than 70 buildings created by famed architects. Instigated in the 1950s by J. Irwin Miller, head of locally-based Cummins Engine Company, a program was launched to subsidize public buildings designed by great architects.
You'll enjoy a tour of the city's most notable buildings and architectural treasures as well as a tour of the Miller House & Garden, designed by Eero Saarinen. In addition a private tour of the Cummins Engine Diesel Plant will be a plus for auto buffs.
Less than twenty miles away is Nashville, Indiana, the heart of Brown County Artists' Colony, one of the oldest regional art colonies in the US. Studios filled with pottery, glass, wood, leather and fiber dot the Arts Village not far from one of Indiana's Covered Bridges.
Spend three relaxing nights in the contemporary Hotel Indigo in the heart of Columbus, where shops and restaurants are close at hand. This is a perfect Autumn Getaway!
Tour Cost: $879 per person sharing. Single Supplement: $239. Deposit: $200 per person.
