    Join us on October 4 for a special meet-up for cf3 members as we view the new film 'Don't Worry Darling' directed by Olivia Wilde. Starring Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, and Chris Pine, this psychological thriller also features incredible footage of mid-century architecture and interiors. Shot on location in Palm Springs, California, many of the homes used are never open to the public and rarely photographed. Variety called it a "dazzling tour of Palm Springs' greatest mid-century architecture" and Curbed said, "the sets are, by far, the best part of the movie."

    Hello cf3 Members~

    About 9 months ago, cf3 became a member of Docomomo USA*. Every year Docomomo picks a theme and invites its member organizations to participate. This year’s theme is US shopping malls. We’ve partnered with Cincinnati Preservation Association to take a look at how malls evolved, became our social outlets and what lies ahead in a time of so much on-line shopping. We hope you’ll join us!

    From Swifton Center to Artisan Village: The Past and Future of Cincinnati’s Malls 

    Ohio’s first auto-oriented (strip) mall, Greenhills Center, was built in 1938 as part of the federal government’s New Deal greenbelt towns project. In 1951, work began on the city’s first modern-style shopping mall:  the open air Swifton Center in Bond Hill. The region’s first enclosed shopping center, Kenwood Mall, was built in 1966. Two years later, an open-air mall previously built in 1960 in Springdale was enclosed to create Tri-County Mall. The how and why of these community destinations continues to evolve today. 

    Explore the history of 20th century suburban development and commerce in Cincinnati and the need to preserve the cultural importance of these uniquely modern social gathering places. Then hear plans for the adaptive re-use and reinvention of shopping malls as sustainable communities of the future. 

    Beth Johnson, Executive Director of Cincinnati Preservation Association 
    David G. Wallace, CEO of DGW Consultants

    cf3 Collector’s Series: Tom and Julie Highley of Highley Vintage

    **Registration will open Friday October 14th at 9AM and is limited to 30 members (and guests for family/modern friend/modern sponsor memberships)**

    Join us on October 29th, as the Collector’s Series takes a spin beyond personal collecting; to what it’s like to dwell in the world of mid century dealers. Tom and Julie Highley, owners of Highley Vintage, will discuss their journey from personal collecting of Art Deco, modernism and pop art in 2009 to their expansion of curating objects and furniture for their large space at Riverside today. Hear their story, where collecting may be headed, and see their super cool stuff. Then, If you like, take time to shop Riverside. A perfect Saturday!

    When: Saturday, October 29, 10:00-11:00 AM
    Where: Highly Vintage Booth, Riverside Center Antique Mall, 3742 Kellogg Ave, Cincinnati, 45226 (Booth is located on the main floor, by the entrance to the restaurant.)
