This lecture reviews works of art in the Fine Arts Museums’ permanent collection that illustrate the history and culture of the Bay Area. From the Gold Rush to the present day, the work of local artists shows us the unique place where we live. We look at local artists’ prints and paintings, landscapes and portraits—people and places that give San Francisco its special place in all our hearts.
