American Ark Films also announces a special thanks to all who attended the non-broadcast premiere event at Carnegie Mellon University's Kresge Theater in the Fine Arts Building on campus, Sunday November 17, 2013 at 6PM.
Hornbostel stepped onto the stage and into the spotlight of the American Renaissance when in 1904, industry titan Andrew Carnegie selected him to design and build Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh, known today as Carnegie Mellon University.
Hornbostel’s body of work is expansive and grand. His magnificent structures – buildings, bridges and monuments – are a timeless tribute to the French style of Beaux Arts, yet remain American classics. Unique and universal in their appeal, Hornbostel’s designs continue to inspire us more than a century removed from his original sketch pad and blue prints.
Join AMERICAN ARK FILMS and New Perspective Communications as we set out to bring the remarkable life and work of Henry Hornbostel to a national audience.
