Fans of Midcentury Modern design can experience the rich architectural heritage that endures in Long Beach at the Modern Architecture Tour on Oct. 13, a daylong series of self-guided tours presented by the University Art Museum at Cal State Long Beach.
The tour will include six gems completed in the ’50s and ’60s: the glass-walled Gibbs & Gibbs architecture office; the McWilliams Residence by John W. McWilliams; the home of Case Study House architect Edward A. Killingsworth; the Clock, Waestman, Clock Law Offices, by Killingsworth, Brady, Smith; the Pekrul House, a light-filled addition to a 1924 bungalow designed by Paul Tay; and the White House, a home atop Signal Hill that was designed by architect Bill Lockett and its original owner, pediatrician Katherine White.
The day ends with a garden party at a private home with refreshments, private art collection tours and jazz music. Proceeds benefit art education and collection conservation of the University Art Museum.
