Modern Architecture Tour

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The UAM Modern Architecture Tour responds to public enthusiasm for mid-century modern design. Recently awarded a Preservation Award from Long Beach Heritage for the 2017 exhibition Frank Bros: The Store That Modernized Modern, the UAM continues to celebrate Long Beach’s prominent role in modernism and highlights some of the most important architects of the region.

The UAM is pleased to present a day of self-guided tours through the following sites:

  • Gibbs & Gibbs Office, by Donald Gibbs (1963)
    Sponsored by Swinerton Builders
  • The Mcwilliams Residence, by John W. McWilliams (1958)
  • The Killingsworth Residence, by Edward A. Killingsworth (1961)
    Sponsored by Studio One Eleven
  • Clock, Waestman, Clock Law Offices, by Killingsworth, Brady, Smith (1957)
    Sponsored by Dunn-Edwards Paints
  • The Pekrul House, 1968 addition to 1924 bungalow by Paul Tay for owners Gus and Carolee Pekrul
    Sponsored by Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture, Inc.
  • The White House, collaboratively designed by architect Bill Lockett and owner Dr. Katherine White (1957)
    Sponsored by Clark Construction

The Garden Party is from 5 – 8 pm at the home of Sylvia and Ronnie Hartman. It is an evening of thanks, with an elegantly catered spread, signature cocktails by The Stache Bar, and an opportunity to socialize with UAM supporters. This fundraiser also features private art collection tours and live jazz music from Miscellaneous Magic. Contact amanda.fruta@csulb.edu for tickets or RSVPs for this event.

This fundraising event benefits UAM exhibitions, art education, student programs, collection conservation, and community engagement.
