IRVING J. GILL: A COMFORTABLE FIT
August 20–October 23, 2016
Curated by Brent Eckerman with Frederick Fisher & Partners Architects
Oceanside Museum of Art is like no other museum. Originally designed in 1934 by the iconic American architect Irving J. Gill, and renovated in 2005 by internationally acclaimed Frederick Fisher and Partners, the building is a cultural landmark and beacon for art in the community. This exhibition will present historic drawings, designs, and materials that celebrate the architecture and design approaches of both Gill and Fisher.
This exhibition is part of Irving J Gill: New Architecture for a Great Country, a multi-site exhibition. Eleven San Diego and Southern California cultural organizations are joining resources to tell the story of Irving J. Gill, an extraordinary San Diegan, and one of the key founders of modern architecture. Exhibitions and programs will be held throughout San Diego County to explore Gill’s life and work.
