Smart Bets: Look Up Asheville II

Creative trifecta Michael Oppenheim (photos), Laura Hope-Gill (essays) and Michele Scheve (design) announce the launch of their latest collaborative effort, Look Up Asheville II. Picking up where architecture/prose book Look Up Asheville: An Architectural Journey left off, the new collection "draws greater attention to the work of James Vester Miller, the slavery-born contracting magnate," features the I.M. Pei Firm’s Biltmore Building, Montford and Chestnut Hill Victorian homes, the history of Kenilworth Apartments and looks back on lost buildings like the Richmond Hill Inn and Stephens-Lee High School. A book launch is Thursday, March 22, 6-8 p.m. at the Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar.
