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 discovery in the diverse collections housed in the San Francisco Public Library. They have spent the last month delving into the collections in the San Francisco History Center, Rare Books, Music, and Periodicals Collections, to name a few. What they have discovered has inspired them to create new works in response to their explorations. The participating artists and designers work in diverse media and approach their subjects from a variety of viewpoints, creating an exhibition that is as diverse as the collections that inspired it.
Exhibition: From May 3 through June 26, 2008, Main Library, Sixth Floor
Related Program: Meet the Artists, Saturday, May 3, 2008, Main Library, Sixth Floor, 4–5 p.m., 100 Larkin Street (at Grove)
