Frescoes by the Bay

The double volume publications of Frescoes by the Bay explore the 1930′s WPA works of acclaimed artists and muralist from Diego Rivera to Maxine Albro to Victor Arnautoff, who painted their murals in San Francisco during the height of the Great Depression.

The books lyrically cite the personal challenges faced by the artists, the stories behind each mural, and the techniques used, which together provide a compelling and interesting picture of the artists, times and events.

Join us for a presentation and book signing by author Karen Norton-Sinell on her new books, Frescoes by the Bay I and II, a walking tour of San Francisco’s buon fresco murals.
Wednesday, August 1, 7-9pm. We hope to see you there!
