The Museum at The Cliff: Global Museum collaborative exhibit through Aug. 21
The Global Museum, SF State’s University museum and teaching lab for the Museum Studies program, has partnered with local Western Neighborhoods Project on a collaborative exhibit, “The Museum at the Cliff.” This pop-up exhibition showcases art and objects from the historic Sutro Baths, Cliff House and Sutro Heights, as well as works from local artists and kid-friendly interactives.
A selection of objects from ancient Egypt collected by Adolph Sutro, now stewarded by the Global Museum on behalf of SF State, are displayed alongside other pieces from the Western Neighborhoods Project and Golden Gate National Recreation Area collections — reunited at the original site of the Sutro Baths “Museum of the World” for the first time since their removal in 1966. A newly expanded, larger, immersive area of the exhibit called “Naiad Cove” has just opened which further explores the historic region and includes items from Playland at the Beach.
The museum is free and open to the public Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., through August 21. The former Cliff House Gift Shop is located in the Richmond district at 1090 Point Lobos Ave. in San Francisco. For more information about this exciting exhibition, visit OutsideLands.org.
