Community: Visual Acoustics

24 Mar

Our friend Gretchen is helping put on a showing of Visual Acoustics at the Crocker Art Museum. Stop by and say hello.

From the Facebook event page:

A special screening of the documentary “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman” will be held at the Crocker Art Museum on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 7:00 PM. This film celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, whose photographs brought modern architecture and progressive architects into American mainstream. Director Eric Bricker will introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion. Anyone with an inter…est in Modernism, photography, architecture, and design should enjoy this film.

Part of Crocker Art Museum’s Film Frame series during “Thursdays ’til 9”, Visual Acoustics is being presented in collaboration with SacMod — an organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and protecting modern art, architecture and design in the Sacramento region — and AIA Central Valley, the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Tickets to the event are $6 for Crocker Art Museum members and $12 for non-members. Admission to the film includes admission to the museum, which will be open until 9:00pm. Food and drink will be available for purchase at the Crocker Cafe until 8:45 PM. For more information and to order tickets online, go to

    We can’t wait! Do you know if the admission price include admission to the museum too?

    Thanks so much for posting this – to answer Claire’s question: yes, admission to the film includes admission to the museum. But you’ll have to get there on the early side to take advantage of this as the museum closes at 9pm. I recommend getting there after work, enjoying a bite at the cafe and checking out the museum before the film.
