The Glendale Historical Society is pleased to present “Glendale’s Extraordinary Craftsman Architecture: Our Contribution to the International Arts & Crafts Movement,” on Wednesday, September 13 at 7:00 pm at the Downtown Central Library Auditorium located at 222 E. Harvard Street.

In conjunction with its upcoming “California Craftsman: Glendale’s Vanishing Heritage” Home Tour, TGHS will host this illustrated presentation on Craftsman architecture and the Arts & Crafts era given by Arlene Vidor, City of Glendale Arts & Culture Commissioner and former Historic Preservation Commissioner and past TGHS President.

The event is co-sponsored by the City of Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department.

Vidor will take the audience on a pictorial tour covering the origins of the American Arts & Crafts era and how an international movement originating in Britain changed the way we live. This period left a treasured and lasting legacy in the United States, especially Southern California.

Three hours free parking is available across the street from the Downtown Central Library at the Marketplace parking structure with validation at the Library’s service desk.
