Bakersfield Built: An Earthquake, A High School Teacher And A Pipeline For Architects

Sep 20, 2019

Bakersfield is well known in the arts for its contributions to country music, notably the Bakersfield Sound. But it’s not as well recognized for its architecture. A new exhibit at the Bakersfield Museum of Art may help change that. It’s called Bakersfield Built: Architecture of the 1960s. Several events are being held in conjunction with the show, including a symposium and guided tour of modern homes this Saturday, September 21.

Listen to the interview above to hear Sian Winship, president of the Southern California Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, tell us more.
