Elizabeth “Lisl” Scheu Close (1912-2011) was Minnesota’s first modern architect and the designer of more than 250 buildings in the state. She was in the vanguard of professionally trained women architects nationally and internationally.

The exhibition is conjunction with a book launch by the same name.
