Egypt Through the Eyes of Sutro
Wealthy Victorian elite commonly amassed private collections and purchased Egyptian objects from antiquities dealers. One such collector was Adolph Sutro.
This exhibition unites objects from the Sutro collection of Egyptian artifacts (now under the stewardship of SF State's Global Museum) with archival material and antiquarian books from the Sutro Library. Items in the exhibit range from 1550 BCE through the nineteenth century.
Exhibit runs through the end of February 2020.
