In 1915 San Francisco invited the world to celebrate the completion of the Panama Pacific Canal, and more importantly, her miraculous reconstruction after the great earthquake of 1906. Many nations participated. Over 11000 paintings, sculptures, murals and monuments astonished visitors.The de Young Museum celebrates the anniversary with an exhibit focusing on 250 objects. Our course will greatly expand this view, studying artists from the Ash Can School to Impressionism to Italian Futurism as well as the architectural legacy of the fair.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
