This exhibition presents a survey of Worden’s photographs from the first two decades of the 20th century, including views of San Francisco’s coastline, Golden Gate Park, and Chinatown. A recurring subject for the photographer was the surviving entryway to a Nob Hill mansion destroyed in the earthquake of 1906 and relocated to Golden Gate Park in 1909. Called the Portals of the Past, the ruin served as both a monument to the city’s recent tragedy and a symbol of its perseverance.
Richard Diebenkorn (American, 1922–1993) held a lifelong interest in printmaking that began with experiments he made as a student at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute), and he maintained a steady output of prints from the 1960s until his death. A group of 160 prints acquired by the Fine Arts Museums in 2014 includes examples from this thirty-year period and demonstrates Diebenkorn’s intense engagement with printmaking processes, particularly etching.

Adam Theis & NOT a Brass Band are the latest offshoot of the genre-bending 15 Year-running Jazz Mafia collective. Formed by five musicians who have had extensive experience playing in New Orleans-Style Brass groups, the group takes instrumentation into new and unexplored territories.
Many of the group's new compositions use fresh rhythmic feels from Rock or EDM and combine melodies, harmony, and phrasing from Chamber, Jazz, and World musics. Of course, there is still a hint of New Orleans lingering beneath the surface as evidence of wild horn romps from time to time.
