2100389901 Shelfless :: San Francisco Public Library

An exhibition by emerging artists, architects and designers from The California College of the Arts. In the spirit of the 17th Century cabinets of curiosity, the participating artists and designers have undertaken journeys of exploration in the diverse collections housed in the SFPL. They have spent the last month delving into the collections in the S.F. History Center, Rare Books, Music, and Periodicals, to name a few. What they have found has inspired them to create new works in response to their discoveries. The participating artists and designers work in diverse media and approach their subjects from a variety of viewpoints, creating an exhibition that is as complex and engaging as the collections that inspired it.

Exhibition: May 2 through July 2, 2009, Main Library, Sixth Floor

Related Program: Shelfless Opening Reception, Saturday, May 2, 4-6 p.m., Main Library, Sixth Floor, 100 Larkin Street (at Grove)
