OCF Grant Supports Belluschi Film Project

In May 2013, a grant of $9,520 was awarded by the Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation to support production of a film titled The Belluschi Pavilion at Marylhurst University: A House with a New Home.

The film will document the journey of the Griffith house, designed in 1948-50 by Pietro Belluschi, through dismantling, storing, and then reconstruction on the university campus. It will be used as a teaching tool, showing how this project can be a model for other organizations that plan to save an historic, cultural property for future generations. The film will feature interviews with persons integral to the project, including Anthony Belluschi, Pietro Belluschi's son, and himself an architect.

The film project is being led by Dr. Libby Dawson Farr, faculty member in the Department of Art & Interior Design and Belluschi scholar. She knew Pietro Belluschi from 1976 until his death in 1994, and wrote her master's degree thesis about him. She has written catalogues for exhibitions of his architecture for museums and galleries. With photographer Gary Lacher, she made a film about Belluschi in 1995 entitled No Perfect Answers: The Life and Architecture of Pietro Belluschi. It has aired several times on OPB and National Public Television.
