Friday Outing to BAM/PFA

Courtesy of Diller Scofidio + Renfro

Friday, 7 October 2016
2:00 pm
Center & Oxford streets, Berkeley

(meet at 1:45 at Center Street entrance)

Our popular series of Friday outings, organized by Sally Sachs, returns this fall, opening with a guided tour of the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive.

Having begun its life as the University of California Press Building (Charles F. Masten & Lester W. Hurd, architects, 1939) the original New Deal Moderne structure was designated a City of Berkeley Landmark in 2004.

New York architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro adapted the building to house galleries, a small theater, art-making lab, and offices, slicing through it with a bold new structure housing a film theater, library, study center, and café.

The tour will be guided by a UC graduate student.
