Including a visit to scenic Asilomar and historic Monterey
Friday to Sunday, 9–11 September 2005

The American Decorative Arts Forum of Northern California invites all members and guests to join the ADAF for a special weekend with tours of historic Monterey, Asilomar, and a private tour of Hearst Castle with Victoria Kastner.

Friday, 9 am Our itinerary begins Friday morning with a lovely drive down to Monterey by private tour bus and includes a tour of the historic Monterey area. That night we stay at Asilomar, an architectural showcase for the works of two of America’s most prestigious architects: Julia Morgan, California’s first licensed woman architect who also designed Hearst Castle, and John Carl Warnecke, internationally known designer of such structures as the grave site memorial of President John F. Kennedy.

Saturday After a hearty breakfast and a tour of the Asilomar grounds, we will drive down the coast to San Simeon. Enjoy a walk on the beach, shopping and antiquing in nearby Cambria. Accomodations pending.

Sunday am Our private tour of William Randolph Hearst’s Castle, designed by Julia Morgan, will be given by Victoria Kastner and Dan Eller. For those who were fortunate enough to hear Victoria’s recent lecture in May 2004, this special walk-through will focus on the decorative art of the collection, as well as the rich architectural history. Even if you have been to Hearst Castle before, this exclusive tour will teach you even more about this important California landmark.
