Land Grab: A Film Screening & Public Conversation

5:30-7:30 p.m. | Friday, Sept. 7 | KMAC Museum, Louisville

Join the University of Kentucky College of Design for the Kentucky premier of the provocative new documentary Land Grab and a discussion with two leading urban thinkers. How do we reimagine the future of American cities in an era of unrelenting change? What strategies hold promise, and who should determine the fate of long-suffering neighborhoods?

Marshall Brown is a licensed architect, urbanist, and principal of Marshall Brown Projects. He recently joined the School of Architecture at Princeton University as an Associate Professor and Director of their Center for Architecture, Urbanism, and Infrastructure.

John R. Hantz is president and CEO of Hantz Group, Inc. He is also the owner of Hantz Farms in Detroit, Michigan, and one of the main figures in the film Land Grab.

Discussion moderated by Gretchen Milliken, Director of Advanced Planning for Louisville Metro Government. This event marks the launch of the new Master of Science in Urban and Environmental Design (MUED) program at the College of Design and the second year of Studio Louisville.
