California’s Wild Edge:
The Coast in Prints, Poetry, and History

Saturday July 8, 2017–Sunday, October 8, 2017

This exhibition captures the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino, Point Reyes, and the San Francisco Bay down through Carmel, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica. Woodcut artist Tom Killion’s prints combine exquisite color with dynamic composition to portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations: storm tides crashing at Point Lobos, serene moonlit coves at Mendocino, and fog encircling the Golden Gate Bridge. Deepening our experience are poetry and prose from Gary Snyder (co-author of California’s Wild Edge) and other well-known California authors of the past and present. The exhibition is originated by the San Francisco Public Library and is based on a new Heyday book by the same title. It is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
