PopUps: Inside Access @ Mike Carter Construction

Tue., Aug. 22, 2017
7–8:30 p.m.
Ivey Professional Building
435 12th Street W, Bradenton, FL 34205

Have you ever seen the past and the future at the same time? Old buildings + new uses = character, charm, identity, and a sense of place.

Like the bricks at O'Bricks? Enjoy the view at Pier 22?

These are examples of historic preservation through adaptive reuse. Explore how we as a community preserve special places and meet some of the people who make it happen.

  • Host Mike Carter of Mike Carter Construction will share adventures in renovating and the evolution of Old Main Street from his "front-row seat" in the historic Ivey building.
  • Special guest Cathy Slusser, author, historian and Director of Historic Resources for Manatee County Clerk of Circuit Court, will share her own TED Talk-style presentation on local history.

Seriously, once you've heard from these two, you're officially a Bradenton insider! Food, drink, and music provided by Realize Bradenton.

Space limited to first 30 RSVP's who guarantee they will attend.

>>> RSVP by Friday 8/18 to or (941) 447-9406.

(This pop-up event is FREE thanks to Realize Bradenton and the Knight Foundation Fund of the Manatee Community Foundation).
