Artist Millard Sheets captured the imagination of millions with his unique blending of artistic style within architectural design. Sheets brought his eye-catching mural and paintwork to over 100 different Home Savings and Loan Branches, many of which still exist as Chase Bank branches.

Professor Adam Arenson, author of Banking on Beauty: Millard Sheets and Midcentury Commercial Architecture in California, will lead this bus tour of sites designed by Sheets and speak to Sheets’s influence and legacy within Southern California.

In recent years, Sheets’ work has been threatened by significant alterations, making raising awareness of these buildings even more important.
