The Sternberger House was built in Greensboro by Sigmund Sternberger. The house, built in 1926, is considered an outstanding example of Venetian renaissance revival architecture. Located on Summit Avenue, the home is now surrounded by parking lots and highways. Sternberger donated the home to the United Arts Council in Greensboro. After his death in 1963, the council used the home as their home office. Since 1979, rooms in the home have been rented to painters, potters, and writers to provide them with a location to create their works. Several of the home's artists, such as Peter Agostini, have work that is found in such places as the Metropolitan and Museum of Modern Art.
