The San Francisco Art Association was at the center of the Bay Area art world from its inception in 1871 through its dissolution in the 1960s. It founded both the first art school west of the Mississippi (now the San Francisco Art Institute), and the San Francisco Museum of Art (now SFMOMA). The Mark Hopkins Institute Review of Art was the San Francisco Art Association's first newsletter. Published between 1900 and 1904, it highlighted local artists, exhibitions, and other San Francisco Art Association news and events, revealing both the inner workings of a young but growing arts community and its relationship with the broader world. In recognition of our shared history and complementary research collections, the libraries of San Francisco Art Institute and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art collaborated to create this complete set of San Francisco Art Association periodicals.
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art California Revealed is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
