Did you know that Julius Shulman photographed several Sacramento buildings?

We will be sharing some of these photographs with you in person at Crocker Art Museum's Film Frame: Visual Acoustics this Thursday evening. My favorite photos of the bunch are of a residence designed by Sacramento architect George Muraki for the Blomberg family. You may recall that Mr. Muraki's personal home was featured in the Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour last June.

Why not come directly to the Crocker after work? Remember -- admission includes access to the museum. Have a bite to eat at the Crocker Cafe and relax with a cocktail.

See Crocker's website for details on buying tickets. Hope to see you there.


  1. Hello!

    Had a great time at the movie last night. I am a designer/blogger here in Sactown and am interested in joining SacMod. How do I join? Great event! I am working on a Streng house right now and am a huge Modern architecture fan.

  2. Hi Katie and thanks for supporting our event! We had a sign-up sheet last night. I'll look to see if you had a chance to place your contact info on it; if not, I will contact you directly. Best, Gretchen

  3. Hey Gretchen- So nice to meet you last night! It was a great event and we were so happy with the turnout! Not sure if I'm on your mailing list, but I'm very interested in helping SacMod!

  4. Likewise Will; thanks for joining us at the Crocker Art Museum last night. I don't think you are on the list we had out for sign-ups. Please send an email with your contact info to SacramentoModern [at] comcast [dot] net -- looking forward to hearing from you.
