Sonoma County Mid-Century Bohemians and Mavericks
Thursday, July 23, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
History Museum of Sonoma County
425 Seventh Street, Santa Rosa
Non Members: $15
Listen in on a lively discussion between Les Adler, Renata Breth, Janet Gracyk and Jonah Raskin as they talk about Sonoma County’s beloved artists, writers, scholars and photographers, like Hansel Mieth and Otto Hagel, Marguerite Wildenhain, Harry Dixon, and Hassel Smith, and the context of their times. Lured by Jack London’s writings and the wish for a simple lifestyle, many were transplants from other countries and large cities. Drawn together by common interests, these mavericks created a thriving creative community in Sonoma County in the mid-century decades during a time period when anti-Communist feeling pervaded most of the country.
