Modernism + Film Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

Considered the “father of California Modern Architecture,” Time Magazine put Richard Neutra on their cover in 1949, ranking him second only to Frank Lloyd Wright among America’s greatest architects. Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat explores how a man of his stature came to befriend this modest, small-town family, and his love for the home’s stunning desert setting, which Neutra compared to the grandness of the mystical Gobi Desert.

An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.

Tickets are $10 for the public, $8 for museum members and $5 for students (Student tickets may be purchased at the door or by phone. Must present student ID to claim).
