Please join us for the first Bancroft Library Roundtable of the spring semester! It will take place in the Lewis-Latimer Room of The Faculty Club at noon on Thursday, February 18. Ann Harlow, an independent scholar, will present "The Historical Background of the New Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive."
Ann Harlow will speak about the rocky road the University of California has been on in developing art museums from the 1870s to today. She will show images of the various buildings where art has been exhibited, as well as others that were imagined on paper but never built. Ms. Harlow is the former director of the art museum at Saint Mary?s College, author of an article on the beginnings of San Francisco?s art museums, and curator of the current exhibition at the Berkeley Historical Society, ?Art Capital of the West?: Real and Imagined Art Museums and Galleries in Berkeley. She has used Bancroft resources for all of these projects as well as her book-in-progress, a dual biography of art patron Albert Bender and artist Anne Bremer.
We hope to see you there. The talks are free and open to the public.
Application deadline is February 1, 2016 by 5pm. Submission instructions can be viewed here. See individual awards pages for details on eligibility and scope of funds.

With highlights from the rich collections of The Bancroft Library, the exhibition examines the building of the Panama Canal and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the fair that celebrated the canal?s opening and the rise of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Exploring the grand endeavors of both enterprises, this centennial exhibition illustrates the global impact of the canal and of San Francisco?s emergence on the national and world stage, as well as the broad human effort that was required to realize both achievements.
