Are you excited to see six Mid-Century Modern gems in Long Beach?
Take this opportunity to get insider access while you support the UAM. 

Back by popular demand, the UAM Modern Architecture Tour mines public enthusiasm for mid-century modern design. Recently awarded a Preservation Award from Long Beach Heritage for the 2017 exhibition Frank Bros: The Store That Modernized Modern, the UAM continues to celebrate Long Beach's prominent role in modernism, and highlights some of the most important architects of the region.

The UAM is pleased to present a day of self-guided tours through the following sites:

  • Gibbs & Gibbs Office, by Donald Gibbs (1963) 
  • The Mcwilliams Residence, by John W. Mcwilliams (1958) 
  • The Killingsworth Residence (pictured), by Edward A. Killingsworth (1961) 
  • Clock, Waestman, Clock Law Offices, by Killingsworth, Brady, Smith (1957) 
  • The Pekrul House, 1968 addition to 1924 bungalow by Paul Tay for owners Gus and Carolee Pekrul 
  • The White House, collaboratively designed by architect Bill Lockett and owner Dr. Katherine White (1957) 

Three of the sites are the designer's own home or office. A Garden Party at the home of Sylvia and Ronnie Hartman will provide a festive finish to the day, with an elegantly catered spread, signature cocktails, and an opportunity to socialize with prominent UAM supporters.

This fundraising event generates vital support for UAM exhibitions, art education, and vision-driven inclusive community engagement and collaborative programmatic offerings. The UAM Modern Architecture Tour also benefits student enrichment by funding targeted outreach and programming to the CSULB campus, LBUSD, the and greater Long Beach community.
