Curated by art historian Kim Munson, Dual Views explores the hidden historic labor landscape of San Francisco: Depression-era waterfront battles between striking longshoremen and police, iconic labor temples amongst soaring office towers, a former dynamite factory in idyllic Glen Canyon, and more. San Francisco State University alumni Wendy Crittenden and Tom Griscom drew upon the Labor Archives and Research Center’s San Francisco Labor Landmarks Guide Book to identify sites and then roamed the city’s streets seeking traces of its restive past.
The opening reception on April 2nd will feature remarks by the photographers about their work and a talk by noted San Francisco labor historian Robert Cherny.
