Extravagance and Industry

An ArtPoint Panel Discussion     

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Coinciding with the final weeks of the exhibition, The Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde 1860-1900currently on view at the Legion of Honor, Extravagance and Industry explores San Francisco's rich Victorian past. Join ArtPoint and industry experts for a discussion centering on the mid-19th century aesthetic movement and the presence of its impressive relics in our lives today. Preservationists will discuss the challenges and importance of looking to the future without forgetting the past.
