At the Art, Music and Recreation Center reference desk, we make an effort to display catalogues of current or recent museum shows in San Francisco. We currently have three new titles on display.
Masters of Fire: Copper Age Art from Israel accompanies an exhibit that originated at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York and that will be on display at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor through January 4, 2015. This book documents objects that had been preserved in a cave in the Judean Desert for 6,000 years until their discovery in 1961.
The Salon Doré from the Hôtel de la Trémoille is now a permanent display at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. This French Neoclassical interior was renovated for 18 months during 2012-2014 and opened to the public on April 5, 2014.
In addition to these reference copies of the books, the Library has circulating copies of each title at the main and a few branches.
Shortly we will have copies available for the Keith Haring: The Political Line which is current on display at the DeYoung Museum. Place a hold to be notified when a copy is available to borrow.
