An exhibition of Peter Koch's striking prints assembled from re-configured photographs, historical documents;manuscript journals and old newspaper engravings; accompanied by short legends
by the artist, hand-set in antique lead and wood type.
This exhibit portrays California both as a vast landscape of mountains, ocean, and forests and as an intimate home for vastly different inhabitants. Scenes of Yosemite and the Gold Rush are displayed, along with more recent work such as colorful paintings by John Sackas of the Golden Gate Produce Market.
The exhibition revisits this pivotal student activist movement through photographs, letters, publications, handbills, and other materials housed in the University Archives and Bancroft manuscript collections.
