Events: CF3 Cookout, Swap Meet and Film Screening

By Steve Rosen · July 20th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Although Cincinnati Form Follows Function (an organization for enthusiasts of Modern design and architecture called CF3 for short) has only been in existence since 2004, it's already come up with a potentially famous photograph of the city. It’s a panorama taken from Bellevue Hill Park in Clifton Heights.

And the success of it gives CF3 something special to celebrate at that very park this Saturday at 6 p.m., when it holds a cookout, Modernism-related swap meet and rare screening of historic footage from the construction of a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Modernist home in Amberley.

This is believed to be the only documentation of construction of a Wright home ever made.

Newcomers are being eagerly welcomed to the free event but should bring their own food — CF3 wants more members and supporters. Those interested in attending should respond to an e-vite on the www.cf3.org Web site.
