Bruce Marwick will be giving a presentation on Alfred W. Eichler (1895-1977), an architect for 38 years in the California State Division of Architecture. Eichler excelled as both an architectural designer and a fine art watercolor painter. The presentation will explore the similarities and differences between Eichler's two bodies of work, and what they reveal about his life. The presentation will also look at how Eichler evolved stylistically as an architect: from the Beaux Arts drawings of his youth to the Mid-Century Modern buildings he designed for Capitol Mall in the 1950s.
Bruce A. Marwick is a Board Member of the Sacramento History Alliance and former Vice President for the Sacramento Art Deco Society. He spent many years as a marketing and graphic design professional in Los Angeles and Sacramento. His interest in Alfred Eichler stems from a presentation he created in 2017 titled, "3 Art Deco Artisans of Sacramento, Taliabue, Polifka & Eichler."
