Irving J. Gill: Simplicity and Reform
Exhibit Tour, UC Santa Barbara
Saturday, September 24, 2016

Join SAH/SCC members will travel to Santa Barbara for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of the Art, Design and Architecture Museum exhibit “Irving Gill: Simplicity and Reform” with curator Jocelyn Gibbs. In addition to a personal guided tour of the exhibit, a selection of additional materials curated specifically for SAH/SCC members will be available in the archive for viewing.

The behind-the-scenes exhibit tour is a drive-yourself event so that members can make it a day trip or spend the weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara. Group size is limited and advance reservations are required for this event. Lunch is on your own; snack on campus, lunch in nearby Isla Vista or explore one of Santa Barbara’s fine restaurants.

The work of Irving J. Gill has been lauded by critic Lewis Mumford as “one of the great leaders of modern architecture” and Henry-Russell Hitchcock who insisted that his buildings were “more premonitory of the next phase of modern architecture than any other American work of the period.” Truly, Gill’s ornamental restraint and elegant proportions laid the groundwork for Southern California modernism.

Check out our two other Irving Gill related events this fall: a free lecture by author Thomas Hines and a home tour of Irving Gill: Los Angeles.
