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.
