Building Bridges, Not Walls - Art and Poetry Exhibit
“Building Bridges, Not Walls” acknowledges the contributions of the multicultural population of the Bay Area and its role in creating world-renown infrastructure. This exhibit features Bay Area artists and poets whose work celebrates these contributions. Three themes will be highlighted to celebrate the bridges, the people who built them and the impact on our lives today: Immigrants, Diversity, and Internationalism.

During July and August, a companion exhibit at the San Francisco Main Library will display and interpret historic photos and objects from the construction of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and other historic San Francisco bridges – the Golden Gate, Lefty O’Doul, and Alvord Lake. These exhibits celebrate the immigrant engineers who designed the bridges, the children of immigrants who built the older bridges, the diverse workforce, including women, who built the new Bay Bridge span, and the internationalism of the Golden Gate International Exposition and of the founding conference of the United Nations.
