The WPA Murals at the San Francisco Maritime Museum | SF History Night | Pacific Heights
Richard Everett, Maritime Museum curator, will present the interesting history and background of the art and artists who in just two years (1937–1938) created the wonderful undersea murals, statues, and terrazzo floors of the Aquatic Park Bathhouse known today as the Maritime Museum of San Francisco.
Including new information still coming to light, he will give a little background about the history of the building and San Francisco’s other Federal Art Projects, but will focus primarily on the works of Hilaire Hiler, Richard Ayer, and Beniamino Bufano.
