Curating the Bay Curator Walkthrough with Jon Christensen
Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
2013 is the Year of the Bay in San Francisco, in celebration of both the America’s Cup yacht race and the opening of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Join our guest curator, Jon Christensen, on a guided tour through our new exhibition, Curating the Bay: Crowdsourcing a New Environmental History.
Curating the Bay is a cultural and environmental history of the Bay, which includes over 200 objects, works of art and photographs from our collections, as well as the new crowdsourcing tool Historypin. Historypin allows visitors, either in person or online to contribute their own photos to our ever-evolving history of the Bay.
This exhibition is curated by Jon Christensen, our second Curating California scholar-in-residence and adjunct assistant professor and Pritzker fellow at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and the Department of History at the University of California, Los Angeles.
