The City College of San Francisco offered its first photography class in 1939 and its Director, Beverly J Pasqualetti took a brief break to command a Navy photo squadron during World War II and returned to be the department chair for over forty years. Since then the program has grown into one of the oldest and largest programs in the country, currently with over two dozen courses and more than twenty Instructors who are accomplished photographers in their own right. Come see work from students, faculty and staff produced during this time span and help celebrate 75 years of visual excellence.

This stair poem, which soars four floors up through the Rosenberg Library’s atrium is read from bottom to top by thousands of members of the College community everyday. The poem accompanies the Project Survive Exhibition. All thirteen quotes come from testimonials by Peer Educators of Project Survive. Traci Wrycza, Project Survive exhibition designer also designed the stair quotes. The idea for the stair poem was inspired by the Chimurenga Library Project at the San Francisco Public Library and resonates with the Groundswell Stairway Project, created by Leslie Simon.
Roll back up to read the way students ascending the stairs do!

City College of San Francisco,
Art doesn’t just hang on museum walls. When it appears in books, you can hold it in your hands. The City College Library collection has millions of beautiful images nestled on the pages of books. Like text, pictures are information. Paintings, photographs, etchings, sculpture, collages and illustrations, all convey visual information in unique ways. Within a book, text supplies a context for images, making it even more possible to decipher them. What do the images in these books bring to mind? The work of internationally known artists from the present and last decades is on display: Chris Ware, Ben Shahn, Norman Rockwell and more. The images range from woodcuts in Wild Pilgrimage (1932), a wordless novel by Lynd Ward to drawings by Edith M. Cowles who used colored pencil to draw the frescoes of artist Giotto di Bondone for the 1931 portfolio Giotto, the Legend of St. Francis as Depicted in the Assisi Frescoes. Chris Ware’s multi-publication Building Stories, 2012, is also on display. Can you find the names of artists and illustrators of books as easily as you find the book’s author? Sometimes this depends on what era the book was published in.
