Evan Lurie Gallery
The Lurie Fine Arts Gallery is a product of the work of Evan Lurie, Mayor Brainard and the Carmel Redevelopment Commission to appeal to high art clientele and to be a major contributor to Carmel’s Arts and Design District.
The design of the Lurie Building, inspired by the proud tradition of “Main Street Architecture” which was established by the distinguished Kress department stores and many other distinctive 5 and dime stores built across the US during the first half of the 20th century, features a suspended sign age marquee, an ornate masonry cornice with a name plaque and crenellated parapet, multipane divided light widows, high quality Endicott brick and highly detailed buff colored cast stone trim and detailing. The facade features two 4-story tower elements flanking a highly detailed center portion composed of an ornate, multicolored diaper brick pattern. The design and craftsmanship displayed in the intricate masonry work are rarely seen in today’s construction, and eventually garnered the prestigious “Carmel LOOK Award.”
The first floor consists of the Evan Lurie Art Gallery, along with a private lobby that gives access to the upstairs Condominiums and office space. The second floor is leasable space for offices or retail, and the third and fourth floors are high-end residential condominiums.
