ART AND LIBRARY COMMITTEE
The Boston Architectural Club will hold its Annual Exhibition at the Boston City Club in November. The Exhibition will consist of photographs, drawings, and models of buildings that have been erected during the last year in Boston and vicinity. It is the purpose of the Club to make this Exhibition show some intelligent developments of building projects and the resulting betterment to communities in which such procedure has been adhered to. That is, it is the Club's desire to show the advantage resulting to communities and owners, where proper architectural consideration and study is given, projects of building development, both of a public and private nature.
In connection with the Exposition of successful projects which have received this proper consideration, it is also the intention of the Club to show other developments, both public and private, where the interests of communities have suffered from the lack of such consideration.
