UC Extension/San Francisco State University – Woods Hall Annex Marble Mosaic – San Francisco CA

Description

The WPA contracted an Italian mosaic setter for this project to teach Albro and other involved artists how to work with marble mosaics. The mosaic was built over the main entrance to Woods Hall.

Unfortunately the mosaic appears to have since been removed or covered over, though confirmation is needed.

Location notes:
"The San Francisco State Teachers College National Register Historic District, also known as the Laguna Street Campus, is located in San Francisco's Hayes Valley neighborhood. The campus recently housed the University of California, Berkeley Extension which relocated to Downtown San Francisco in December 2003. Shortly thereafter, the university issued a request for proposals and entered into an exclusive negotiating agreement with A.F. Evans Development, Inc. to convert the campus to residential use under a long-term lease of the property, whose owner will remain the university." - http://www.friendsof1800.org/ADVOCACY/ucextension.html Parts of the campus have been slated for demolition and the exact state of the buildings now is not known.
