  • The Arion Press 1802 Hays St San Francisco, CA, 94129 United States (map)

Arion Press and The Grabhorn Institute invite you to a book signing and illustrated talk by Catherine Coleman Brawer.

Hildreth Meière (1892-1961) is the unsung heroine of the Art Deco movement. A rare woman in the American architecture world of the 1920s onward, she designed the brilliant roundels at New York’s Radio City Music Hall and the mosaics at St. Bartholomew’s Church and Temple Emanu-El. Catherine Brawer accompanies dazzling color images with an account of Meière’s life, including the start of her career in San Francisco. The author will sign copies of her book, The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meière.
