Show map
12 people attending
Event description
Join Esotouric, L.A.s most eclectic historic tour company, for an excursion into downtown Los Angeles, to view several important Ernest Batchelder tile installations, each commission revealing fascinating elements of Batchelder's creative and commercial development. Attendees will get the chance to visit two sites not usually open to the public, and deepen their understanding of Batchelders place in Southern California tile history.

Tour locations include John A. Roebling's Sons Co Wire Works (1913) with its exquisite pocket lobby decorated with custom tiles that honor the Roebling family's commercial history, including the wire rope that spanned the Brooklyn Bridge; Batchelders largest interior commission, the Dutch Chocolate Shop (1914), a complete floor-to-ceiling environment with tiled groin vaulting, unique murals of Dutch vernacular scenes and a pair of lifelike sculpted children blowing bubbles of light; and the Romanesque Revival Fine Arts Building (1927), its double-height lobby entirely decorated with tiles, fixtures and figural elements drawn from the catalog of the now well-established tile merchant.

Flat shoes are recommended. Bus departs from Pasadena Museum of History. Tickets include a casual boxed lunch at the Dutch Chocolate Shoppe, and entrance to the exhibitions "Batchelder: Tilemaker" and "Cast & Fired: Pasadena's Mid-Century Ceramics Industry" following the tour.

Museum Members $65.00 ($68.27 w/service fee)
General $75.00 ($78.62 w/service fee)
