Imaginarium: Drawings by Bernard Maybeck

24 February–6 June 2011
Flora Lamson Hewlett Library
Graduate Theological Union
2400 Ridge Road
Berkeley, CA 94709

This exhibition features original drawings that Maybeck created for his colleague Julia Morgan’s Western Hills cemetery project in Lawndale (now Colma). Although the cemetery was never built, the drawings themselves stand as a monument to Maybeck’s imagination and artistry. Included are these works from the private collection of Foster Goldstrom, as well as documents, photographs, and books from the GTU archives and other Bay Area collections.

The exhibition is free of charge and open to the public during library hours. It formally opens at 6:00 pm on 24 February 2011, with a lecture by Daniella Thompson on Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan’s collaborations. A reception in the Dinner Board Room will follow. For further information, please call (510) 649-2500 or visit http://www.gtu.edu/library/news/art-exhibitions/.
