SFMOMA becomes a venue for discussing public issues in this monthly series. What does our urban landscape reveal about power and planning in San Francisco? Author and geographer Gray Brechin looks back at early Bay Area planning initiatives, in particular during the Works Progress Administration, and traces the impact of those large-scale structures on the city today, while urban planner and architect Robin Abad Ocubillo discusses the role of a range of constituents in contemporary planning efforts to make and remake the city and its neighborhoods. Moderated by Deena Chalabi, co-curator of Public Knowledge and Associate Curator of Public Dialogue at SFMOMA.
Free and open to the public
