Event Three: “The Art and Architecture of Cal State Channel Islands”
January 10th, Studio Channel Islands at 10am – return to SCI at 3pm
Cost: $85 includes guided tour of the Campus by John Gormley plus special guest and transportation
Nestled on 1200 acres at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains is the picturesque campus of California Mission and Spanish Revival architecture. The earliest buildings were built in 1934 as part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal program to house the California State Mental Hospital. Our private tour will be led by John Gormley, Campus Architect and Director of Planning, Design and Construction. From the iconic Bell Tower to the magnificent Broome Library, each renovated building merges the old with the new, leaving the most striking architectural and historical aspects intact. Structures originally designed to contain Camarillo State Hospital are now reinvented as open high-tech spaces for learning, research and gathering. We will have a no host lunch in the Dining Commons and transportation will be provided to and from the campus.
