The ceremony honoring the winners of the second annual Bulfinch Awards takes place tomorrow, Wednesday evening, at 6. Attendees will meet at the Grand Staircase of the Massachusetts State House, where the keynote speaker will be Judge Douglas Woodlock, who helped write design guidelines for the federal court system.
The award recognizes the regional accomplishment of work in classical architecture and allied arts. Charles Bulfinch was the architect of the State House and led the early aesthetic improvements that helped turn Boston into a great American city. He later worked on the U.S. Capitol.
Admission at the door is $100, and if the food this year is as succulent as last year, then honoring classicism in New England will definitely please oral as well as ocular tastes.
