Join us as we honor the 120th birthday of Corrado Parducci and celebrate his work and craftsmanship!
Parducci was an architectural sculptor who helped make the Detroit buildings you love beautiful. His work graces the Masonic Temple, Guardian, Fisher, Penobscot, Meadow Brook Hall and many more.
At this year’s tribute party, we are excited to award the second Craftsman Award. This award will be presented to an outstanding craftsmen carrying on the tradition, style and techniques of architectural ornamentation and to an organization that has helped preserve or bring significance back to our treasured stock of ornamentation.
Located at Woodward Throwbacks, a reclaimed and custom furniture shop, there will be light fare, drinks, and music. Best of all, we will get to mingle with the Woodward Throwbacks artisans, see their current works in progress, as well as chat with local craftsmen and Parducci enthusiasts. Early bird tickets are $45 for non-members and $55 for non-members.
