We are fortunate to have three amazing permanent art exhibits here at the Evans Campus. All exhibits are located on the second floor.
DIEGO RIVERA MURAL
Thanks to William Maynez, the Evans Campus is very fortunate to have a five panel replica of the Diego Rivera mural. The original mural is housed in the Diego Rivera Theater on the Ocean Campus.
JOE BLUM PHOTOGRAPHS
Joseph A. Blum Photography 415-648-0474
Since retiring from the trades, Joe Blum has dedicated himself to documenting the labor process through photographs. He has documented the construction of the new east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, a project he has followed from its inception to the present day and much more.
OUR WORK, OUR LIFE
Our Work Life sets out to tell the intimate side of the working history of the San Francisco Bay Area. This mural, embedded with quotes, is collaboration between artists Oscar Melara and Kate Connell and the Labor Archive and Research Center at San Francisco State University. In the array of commercial images that paper over our world, we, working people, are rarely represented. This project celebrates the contributions of the people around us whose contributions we enjoy but are often “invisible.” It includes blue collar and white collar work in order to explore our common experience. We hope viewers enjoy the mural and maybe leave with increased pride in their or their family’s work. Or that the mural makes those that do invisible jobs less so, and that the skills in “unskilled” jobs are appreciated and become associated with living, breathing human beings.
