FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT CIVIC CENTER TOUR AND LUNCH AT LA TOSCANA
Join us for a private docent-led behind-the-scenes tour of the beloved Marin County Civic Center designed by renowned architect Frank LLoyd Wright. The Marin County Civic Center (1957) is one of the last major works of Wright’s career and his only realized project for a government entity.
In this exclusive tour, you’ll get access to the Marin County Board of Supervisors Chambers and their private balcony, you’ll be eye level with the building’s iconic blue roof, you’ll see custom furniture designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built by inmates from San Quentin’s wood shop, and you’ll learn the complicated and scandalous history of the creation of the building from specially trained docents.
Afterwards, lunch at La Toscana, just across the highway. Check out the menu: https://www.ristorantelatoscana.com/lunch-menu
