Join us to welcome Professor Margaretta Lovell, Professor of the History of Art, as a speaker in our Arts and Culture series.

How many times have we walked the UC Berkeley campus, usually without even thinking about the history of the buildings that surround us?

Here are a few great things Margaretta will be speaking about with all of us.

In what ways was the campus determined by the geography of Berkeley?

How many architects submitted plans for the UC campus?

What are the UC buildings that Julia Morgan designed?

What was the original plan for all of the floors of the Campanile?

Get the answers to all of these questions and many more at our Arts & Culture Talk on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 6pm.  Tickets available on Eventbrite.

Berkeley Restaurant Week

A stunning French restaurant is tucked away on the second floor.

It is Julia’s at the Berkeley City Club, with the name chosen by our Club members, in honor of our architect, Julia Morgan.
