The 2004 Craftsman-Spanish Revival Weekend
Save Our Heritage Organisation is proud to present the 2004 Craftsman-Spanish Revival Weekend. Our expansion into the Spanish Revival period is an exciting one for us and one that fills a need for our historic communities in San Diego. The transition from Craftsman to Spanish revival is a natural one and the Weekend's tours and lectures will highlight some of the similarities as well as the distinct differences in the two styles and periods.
The special events during the weekend include a tour of six Craftsman and Spanish Revival houses, architectural tours, the Show & Sale, lectures by nationally prominent experts, book signings, and a silent auction.
The Weekend gets started at the San Diego Community Concourse with the Show & Sale, which will feature more than 40 exhibitors from across the country who offer the finest in antiques, revival, and contemporary merchandise. The Show & Sale is an extraordinary resource for Arts & Crafts and Spanish Revival enthusiasts and collectors.
As a special treat, a rare glimpse into the holdings of some of San Diego's most serious collectors may be seen at the Show & Sale. An exhibition of period ephemera will include architectural, decorative and San Diego-specific items.
Lectures by noted experts continue SOHO's strategy of preservation through education. Speakers will include author and designer Jane Powell, architect Arrol Gellner, lighting expert Su Bacon, metalsmith Robert Trout, designer Paul Duchscherer, and Richard Requa historian Parker Jackson. Also on Saturday morning, a special trolley tour will examine bungalow courts, which are prime examples of the interpretation and integration of Craftsman and Spanish Revival features, and a walking tour of Coronado will explore some of Richard Requa's Spanish Revival designs.
The most anticipated event is always the Historic Home Tour. We have an exciting line-up this year, which illustrates a great variety of styles. There will be six homes, three in the Craftsman style and three in the Spanish Revival style. Saturday night, those desiring an exclusive look at three homes in addition to the spectacular homes on the tour may enjoy an hors d'oeuvres and wine reception in a festive evening atmosphere. Funds raised through this special event will support the Mission Hills Ft. Stockton Historic District designation efforts.
Once again artist Leon Loughridge has produced a woodblock print poster to help us raise funds. The 2003 poster was so popular it is now sold out and is bringing nice returns for some owners on eBay! This year we chose the 1938 Old Police Headquarters as the subject. It is a San Diego Spanish Revival landmark, and, like last year's Red Rest and Red Roost, on SOHO's Most Endangered list. The poster will be produced as a limited edition of 80, and may be reserved in advance.
The Weekend is co-sponsored by San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyle Magazine and Style 1900 Magazine. It is with the help of fine companies like these that SOHO is able to present such a quality event.
