 The Mystery of the Dead Sea Scrolls

This blockbuster exhibition featured twelve Dead Sea scroll fragments, and many antiquities from the Israel Antiquities Authority, along with rare books from the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library. For the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco installation, the exhibition was expanded to include paintings, works on paper, decorative arts, textiles, and antiquities from the Museums’ collection that illuminated the biblical stories found in the scrolls.

 A Feast for the Eye: Food in Art

The permanent collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco were the basis for this thematic exhibition that traced the use of food as a subject in art. The exhibition showcased art in all media, placing it, wherever possible, into its historical context and exploring the history, culture, and meaning behind it.

 Reflections: Fashion, Dolls, & the Art of Growing Up

Over 40 costumes from the collections of the American Textile History Museum were combined with dolls from national and regional museums and private collections to tell the story of little girls growing up. Using artifacts from the early 19th century to the present, this exhibit juxtaposed traditional female clothing, playthings and occupations with objects interpreting evolving codes of behavior.
