On Thursday, May 24th at 6:30 PM local documentary photographer Robert Coppola will come by the library to give a presentation on the historical government subsidized housing project in Greenbelt, Maryland founded during the New Deal era. Coppola will discuss how this project was intended to provide a model of Greenbelt towns located outside urban areas with significant changes in town planning and housing design. As part of his 75th anniversary documentary he will also provide historic photographs and commentary to illustrate the planning, landscape architecture and sculpture as it exists today. Robert Coppola’s work as a documentary photographer is included in the collection of The Library of Congress and The Boston Public Library. He was teaching at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design since 1976 as a full-time professor before retiring in 2017.
