The Julia Morgan Festival Gala
by Jill Johnson and Mary Breunig

Mark October 12 on your calendars for the Julia Morgan 2012 Festival Gala—the launch of the Julia Morgan 2012 Festival!  The Julia Morgan 2012 Festival is a statewide celebration honoring the life and work of California’s first licensed woman architect, Julia Morgan. Her projects include Hearst Castle, the Asilomar Conference Center, the Berkeley City Club and numerous residences, totaling almost 700 buildings.  The Festival runs from October 1 through November 15, 2012.
The Gala will be held at the fabulous Berkeley City Club.  In addition to a cocktail reception with specialties created by chefs from several Julia Morgan-designed venues, live music and dinner, the event will feature a photography contest and several surprises.  Period dress (1920s-1930s) will be welcomed!
