A long-time favorite film at the Home and Studio is Snow Hill, 1925, featuring extended Dow family sledding in Revere Park and transitions to Herbert H. Dow handing out fruit to his grandchildren in the orchard. We are then transported to the 1967 Montreal World’s Fair featuring Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome. As Alden and Vada Dow travel home from Canada they stop off in Northern Michigan and the Interlochen Campus. After intermission we’ll explore Alden B. Dow’s Midland Architecture during the 1960s, including the Midland Community Center, residential designs and religious structures. As a finale we experience the fun and playfulness of the Dow Chemical Company’s Field Day, c.1939.
