Claremont Modern: The Convergence of Art + Architecture at Midcentury

In conjunction with the exhibition Irving J. Gill: New Architecture for a Great Country, the San Diego History Center hosts the San Diego premiere of a 90-minute documentary examining the vital relationship between art, design and architecture in Claremont, California in the years following War II.

Come explore the development of a major center of Midcentury Modern design and learn about the San Diego connections afterwards. The event begins with a light reception in SDHC’s Atrium, then moves next door to the Museum of Photographic Art theater, and concludes with discussion and a Q&A session with the film producer Paul Bockhorst and Keith York from Modern San Diego.
