San Francisco Main Library
Galleries and Exhibits

The San Francisco Main Library at 100 Larkin Street currently has eleven exhibits throughout the building, including three in the two main galleries and eight in other areas of the library.  

Some of the current exhibits are:
Ohlone Elders and Youth Speak: Restoring A California Legacy (Pictured above)
Jewett Gallery – Lower Level  
Through: Sunday, 1/04/15
Photographs and oral histories of young and old Ohlone tribal members celebrating their culture.  During this exhibit, the annual October Ohlone Big Time Gathering was held at the Rob Hill Campground in the San Francisco Presidio.     

Compositions: A Filipino American Experience
Skylight Gallery Exhibit Area - 6th Floor
Through Sunday, 12/07/14
Historical photographs by Ricardo Ocreto Alvarado of the Filipino community in San Francisco during the 1940s and 1950s

Primal Green II
Our Environment 
through Quilt Artists’ Vision and Voice
Wallace Stegner Environmental Center - 5th Floor
Through Friday, 4/24/15

Over 20 local quilt and fiber artists exhibit quilts with an environmental theme, including abstracts, landscapes, kayaking and more, from five foot square to placemat size and smaller.

My favorite was “Compost,” an artistically accurate and tasteful rendition of a wide spectrum of rotting garbage.
