New Views on the Art and Architecture
of the California Missions
Dr. Julia Costello
Dr. Julia Costello, archaeologist and scholar of the Spanish and Mexican Periods in California, will present an illustrated talk based on her recent book co-authored with historian Edna Kimbro. The California Missions: History, Art, and Preservation (Getty Conservation Institute, 2009) was the Grand Prize Winner of the International Book Award for Best Non-Fiction for 2009.
The Spanish missions of California represent the state’s oldest and richest historical legacy. Highlights from recent research into the art and architecture of these institutions include personal stories of Native American master masons and artisans. Elaborate wall murals executed on Mission walls are now largely known only through the CCC’s Index of American Design drawings, often the only surviving record of these historical treasures.
