Murals from Teotihuacan on view

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco hold the largest and most important collection of Teotihuacan murals outside of Mexico. They came to the de Young as part of the bequest of the Harald Wagner estate. Wagner, a San Francisco–based architect, was a passionate art collector who had spent several years living in Mexico. In the mid-1960s he purchased a number of mural fragments from the site of Teotihuacan, an hour north of Mexico City.

September 26, 2014 - 6:00pm8:30pm

Join us in celebrating the artist’s residency with light refreshments.

Adele Crawford's work investigates transience and impermanence. Drawing from an ever-expanding collection of commonplace materials, she explores elements of past and present. Selecting obsolete things, such as photographs from the 1800s, vintage books, or personal papers, she alters their appearance and creates for them a new intention. Process drives her work, which is slow, reflective, and repetitive as she dissects, alters, and reconfigures.
