Dual Views explores the forgotten labor history of San Francisco: violent battles along the waterfront, a bombing on Market Street, the former dynamite factory in idyllic Glen Canyon and more. SF State 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 explosive past. Crittenden and Griscom’s contrasting styles form a fresh vision of the city and add a new perspective on the tradition of landscape photography.

Youth Art Exchange sparks a shared creative practice between professional artists and public high school students, furthering youth as leaders, thinkers and artists in San Francisco. To accomplish this, Youth Art Exchange offers citywide arts, high quality education programming, field trips, events and more. The summer internships at Youth Art Exchange provide San Francisco public high school students hands on job experience in the arts. They work with professional artists in a variety of arts disciplines including architecture, photography, fashion design and traditional percussion. Students develop art skills and experience what it's like to be a professional architect, fashion designer, musician or photographer. At the end of this four-week competitive paid internship program, students complete 240 hours working as an artist.
