Long Beach Modern Home Tour: October 15th
In January 2017, the University Art Museum will open the exhibition Frank Bros.: The Store That Modernized Modern. Long Beach retailer, Frank Bros. was the primary U.S. source for the most coveted mid-century design at the height of the modernist era, furnishing nearly half of the Case Study Houses for Arts & Architecture Magazine. The store emphasized the principles of aesthetics and functionality in furniture design, and blurred the boundaries between art, design, and commerce with their exhibitions, innovative graphic design, marketing, and public relations.
This fall, the University Art Museum will present the Long Beach Mid-Century Modern Home Tour, on October 15, 2016, to benefit the Frank Bros. exhibition. This tour will highlight the modern architecture of Hugh Davies, Edward Killingsworth, Cliff May, George Montierth, Richard Neutra, and Raphael Soriano with nine stops throughout Long Beach.
