On May 12th, 2015 at 6:30 pm. we are joining our friends at the Sacramento Public Library again this year for “Capital Decades: 1960s.” We’ll be teaming with James Scott for “The Best of Times, the Toughest of Times: Sacramento Life, Leisure and Reaction to that Damned War in Southeast Asia.” Join us and reminisce or learn about our local history!
Many thanks to the City of Sacramento Preservation Commission, who unanimously voted at their 10.15.14 meeting to write a letter of support for the nomination of Capitol Towers to the National Register of Historic Places!
SacMod also suggested during the meeting via an application submitted to the City of Sacramento Preservation Director that Capitol Towers Historic District be listed on the Sacramento Register of Historic and Cultural Resources.
A new proposed project seeks to destroy a thriving and historic mid-century modern neighborhood in our urban core that is already a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly mixed-use community.
Read more about Sac Mod’s response to the proposed project and our efforts to protect Capitol Towers and Garden Apartments, including our nomination of the neighborhood to the National Register of Historic Places.
We’re excited to check out “Mid-Century Madness”, a show at Blue Line Arts in Roseville. Opening this Thursday, June 5 — with an Artist’s Reception June 21 — it promises to be a fun exhibition featuring Mid-Century inspired artwork, period furniture, lamps and other crazy stuff representative of the era curated by Tony Natsoulas with contributions from members of SacMod (Sacramento Modern)!
