“A Celebration of Bernard Maybeck and Principia College” was held on November 8-10, 2012, at Principia College in Elsah, Illinois.

This special event included prominent architects and speakers, as well as a showing of Paul Bockhorst’s film Pursuing Beauty: The Architecture of Bernard Maybeck.

A special exhibition of selected architectural renderings from the Maybeck and White Collection of the Principia Archives was open for viewing. These rarely seen pastel and gouache originals reveal Bernard Maybeck’s hand in motion capturing the vision, beauty, and promise of the Principia commission.
