Back in 1982 I bought a photo album/manuscript at a Boys and Girls Club rummage sale in Venice, Ca, and it had some wonderful pictures of the artists and artwork from the San Francisco Expo. The photos depict the artwork in several stages of development as well as a few photos of the artist themselves working on their canvases. This manuscript list all the artist, their home addresses, and where their artwork is located on Treasure Island. I know not all the artist are not represented as Diego Rivera is not represented in this album. In all the research I have done I have not found any websites that represent the art or artist from the SFGGIE and I was wondering if there was any interest in this facet of the Expo? Once I figure out how to post I will post a couple of examples.

I have around 100 photos of the following artists artwork (and in a few cases the artist): Millard Sheets Frank Van Sloun Helen Forbes Dorothy Puchinelli Nelson Poole Franz Bergman The Misses Bruton TL Fluegger Hugo Balin Joan Stoll Armin Hansen Maynard Dixon It is a treasure trove of period art but I need to reformat the photos to upload here.
