Event Details

The Preservation Chair of the Sacramento Art Deco Society, Bruce Marwick, will be telling the remarkable story of Dunbar Dyson Beck (1902-1986), a painter, WPA muralist, and creative force in Sacramento from the 1940s to the 1980s. Beck graduated from Yale University and won the prestigious American Academy Prix to Rome competition, allowing him to study in Europe. In the 1930s, Eleanor McClatchy (1895-1980) recognized Beck's talents and enticed him to the West Coast to live and work. McClatchy became Beck's most important patron.
