Photography from Monterey Area Architectural Resources Archive (MAARA)

Ongoing through November 9th

Part of Carmel’s centennial celebration, the event is free and the public is invited.

Carmel Modernism, a photography exhibit exploring the early influence of  Monterey peninsula master architects.

Organized by Monterey Area Architectural Resources Archive (MAARA), the exhibit examines the early influence of the master architects like Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright whose presence on the peninsula gave way to subsequent generations of architects whose work is the local legacy we celebrate today. 

The exhibit will reveal through photography, renderings and blueprints the architectural contributions to the built environment that is the signature of Carmel. Architects include William Wuster, Mark Mills, Rowan Maiden and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others.
The exhibit can be seen Monday through Friday from 11 to 4 p.m. or by appointment, through November 9th.
