Wine & Lecture: Designing Hollywood

The Coronado Historical Association invites you to the next lecture in the Wine and Lecture series as author Christian Esquevin gives an inside look at his latest book Designing Hollywood: How the Studio Wardrobe Department Created the Image of Golden Age Movie Stars. From the earliest days of their establishment in Hollywood, movie studios found that they needed to set up wardrobe departments and hire the best costume designers they could find. Women made up a large part of the audience – and they wanted to see the newest fashions on their favorite stars. Men could be attracted to the sexy outfits on the now stylish “Hollywood line” figure. The studios geared their advertisement to promote what the top stars would be wearing in forthcoming films.

Reflections: Session 4

Dec 1 - Dec 8, 2023

Reflections is an art-making workshop series designed to serve adults 55 and older.


In this workshop series participants will explore how ideas about the body integrate into contemporary art.


Through close looking, we will engage with artworks where the body is present, and where its notable absence invokes the body.


Each workshop will include an investigation of contemporary art-making techniques and materials. No prior art experience is required. Transportation will be provided, if required. Participants may join one session (two days) or more!
