Eureka Municipal Auditorium – Eureka CA

Description

"A 1935 WPA project, the massive Eureka Muni is an example of the Art Deco style. Fluted piers separate the extrance bays between the heavy fluted corners. The section is embellished with abstracted, two-dimensional ornament typical of the style. At the cornice level, this ornament resemble organic motifs. The main body of the building is similarly detailed, and layered horizontal bands occur at the parapet level behind the entrance. On the side elevation, four recessed bays with upper floor windows are flanked by pavilions with thin windows and Art Deco styling."
