Surviving Treasures of the GGIE
Although the Golden Gate International Exposition ended over 80 years ago, some remains still survive on the island, including, of course, the fair's Administration Building, but also the Pacific Unity Sculptures, the Pacific Basin Fountain, and some hidden treasures, Anne Schnoebelen has been researching the remains of the GGIE for many years and will share her findings.
Speaker: Author of the illustrated booklet Treasures: Splendid Survivors of the Golden Gate International Exposition, Anne Schnoebelen has worked for decades to preserve Treasure Island's remaining exposition art works. She submitted the application which gained California State Historic Landmark status for the island and raised funds to place the monument on the causeway. Recipient of a 2014 Preservation award from the Art Deco Society of California, she is a San Francisco City Guide and a Vice President of the Treasure Island Museum.
