LITTLE ISLAND - BIG IDEAS
A Free Lecture Series on the
Past, Present and Future of Treasure Island
Presented by the Treasure Island Museum Association
As the official photographer of the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Exposition, Gabriel Moulin had access to the newly constructed Treasure Island fair site that allowed him to work in an unfettered manner throughout the fair, and even before it opened. This lecture presents some of the most iconic work from Moulinís 100,000+ piece archive, which also includes photographs of historically, politically, and culturally significant events in the United States and abroad.
Speaker: Jean E. Moulin, curator of the Moulin Studio Archive for over 35 years and the wife of Moulinís grandson, Tom, who worked in the family studio and in the tradition of his grandfather, his father Raymond, and his uncle Irving.
The lecture series is presented on Treasure Island, in historic Building One, on a Saturday at 10:30 am.
Register for the series to be notified as lectures are scheduled.
Treasure Island is easily accessible by bus or car. Free parking in front of Building One, the large semicircular building on the right just inside the main gate.
"Little Island - Big Ideas" is presented by the Treasure Island Museum Association with support from the Treasure Island Development Authority and The Winery - SF on Treasure Island.
October 25: Art in Action Today.
The tradition of Treasure Island as a crucible of creative art dates from the
1939-40 fair and thrives again today, with many artists' and designers' studios
occupying buildings remaining from the GGIE and the Navy. Meet and hear
from Marco Cochrane, creator of the island's iconic Bliss Dance and frequent contributing
sculptor to Burning Man.
November 15: From Garden to Table on Treasure Island. Although the redevelopment plans include restaurants and an urban farm, there's no need to wait - they're both here today. Corey Block, manager of the Michelle Obama Treasure Island Job Corps Green Acre will talk about the creation of this urban garden in 2009 and the role it plays in the Culinary Arts program of the Job Corps Center.
