Arthur W. Hawes Arthur W. Hawes

Hawes was primarily based in Los Angeles where he designed the UCLAN Theatre, later known as the Crest Westwood.

In the 1920s Hawes designed the Temple of Art and Music in Tucson, Arizona, which was a close carbon copy of the Pasadena Community Playhouse. Newspapers reported that Hawes had worked in association with architect Elmer Grey on the playhouse, and the designs for the Tucson theatre were developed at Grey’s offices in Los Angeles.
