2-25-18 Authors on Architecture: Arenson on Millard Sheets - Free event - Glendale Library

Authors on Architecture: Arenson on Sheets
Lecture, Glendale Central Library
Sunday, February 25th, 2:00 PM
Join SAH/SCC and the Glendale Central Library (Welton Becket & Associates, 1973) as author Adam Arenson debuts Banking on Beauty: Millard Sheets and Mid-Century Commercial Architecture in California (University of Texas Press, 2018), his long-awaited volume on the architecture of Home Savings.

For more than three decades, Millard Sheets (1907-1989) and his studio of artists designed Home Savings and Loan branches throughout California, studding their iconic projects with mosaics, murals, stained glass, and sculptures that celebrated both family life and the history of the Golden State. The collaboration between the Millard Sheets Studio and Howard Ahmanson (1906-1968), Home Savings' executive, resulted in more than 40 branches designed and built between the completion of the first collaboration in 1955 and Ahmanson's death.
The Glendale Central Library is also a winner of a 2018 Preservation Award by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
