Arts and Crafts In Northern California
SAH/SCC Film Screening and Talk
Saturday, October 16, 2010
Join the SAH/SCC on Saturday, October 16th at 1PM for a FREE screening of the new documentary, "Designing with Nature: Arts & Crafts Architecture in Northern California." The 86-minute, widescreen production examines the profound effects of the Arts and Crafts movement on both the physical and cultural development of Northern California in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Filmmaker Paul Bockhorst will be present to discuss the production and his series on the Arts & Crafts movement in California. The event is free, however, seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Main Branch of the Glendale Public Library (Welton Becket Associates, 1973) located at 222 E. Harvard Blvd. , Glendale.
Designing with Nature introduces viewers to the work of several important architects who were influenced by Arts & Crafts ideas. They include Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, Willis Polk, Ernest Coxhead, John Galen Howard, Louis Christian Mullgardt, John Hudson Thomas, and Henry Gutterson, among others. The documentary also observes the influence of John Ruskin and William Morris, leading voices of reform in Britain, where the Arts and Crafts movement originated, as well as two advocates of Arts and Crafts ideals in Northern California, the Rev. Joseph Worcester and Charles Keeler. Rev. Worcester built one of the earliest Arts and Crafts houses in the Bay Area, and Keeler authored the influential book "The Simple Home".
Beat the heat of late summer in Los Angeles by joining us for a thoughtful discussion about the Arts and Crafts movement in Northern and Southern California. The event is free and reservations are not required. Light refreshments provided.
