Designed to coincide with the San Francisco Art Institute seminar Bohemian Rhapsodies: 1871–1915, the exhibition focuses on the artistic community that established itself leading up to the Panama Pacific International Exposition. The exhibition will feature a selection of period-inspired projects and a curated selection of archival images, objects, and ephemera.
