The Waterloo Region Museum has launched a new TALKS series integrating the minds of great individuals, allowing  other active and mature minds to learn and discuss diverse topics on the past, present and future of Waterloo Region.

Rick Haldenly, director of the University of Waterloo’s school of architecture, has offered his time and expertise to discuss the types of modern architecture that has been built since the Second World War on Oct. 31 from 1 to 3 p.m.

According to the TALKS series brochure on the museum’s website, the lecture, called Images of Progress – A New Era – Modern Architecture in Waterloo Region 1950 to 2011, will allow Haldenly to explore the roots of modernism in the region. He will recall the accomplishments of the ’50s and ’60s and focus on the many recent and contemporary buildings the region will soon have to offer.

Come and enjoy listening to this lecture in the relaxed, but confined Christie Theatre within the museum at a cost of $8 per ticket or $40 for a full series pass that ends Nov. 28.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the museum at 519-748-1914 or visit them at
