GREENHILL ON THE ROAD
Wilmington, NC | April 10, 2015
We are so looking forward to our next Greenhill on the Road trip to Wilmington. Last December, Bethany and I had the honor of meeting Hiroshi Sueyoshi-not only is his retrospective at the Cameron Art Museum spectacular (and their best attended show ever!), Hiroshi is truly a NC treasure and to have an opportunity to meet him will bring you joy. Is he worth a trip to Wilmington and back? ABSOLUTELY! Even more intriguing than our visit to CAM, we will get to peak into two of Wilmington's sweetest homes, designed by Michael Ross Kersting, AIA. These are not Wilmington's grandest homes, not the largest by far, but they are special- one, a home of an artist and the other where an NC transplant calls home, each with elements that will surprise and craftsmanship to be envied. We can't wait to get in and check these two homes out!
