Projection Party at The Museum at The Cliff WNP Event

Feb 12, 2022 5:30pm-6:30pm (Saturday) at The Museum at The Cliff 1090 Point Lobos Avenue

With support from the Prelinger Archives, we are thrilled to celebrate the third of four projected video artworks by Ben Wood animating local history The Museum at The Cliff, located in the former Cliff House Gift Shop at 1090 Point Lobs Avenue, on February 12, 2022.

This installation, naturally secluded from Point Lobos Avenue for an intimate viewing experience, will illuminate three northerly-facing windows with diverse scenes of the Cliff House and connected sites. Imagery shows change over time at the Cliff House through the sequenced montage of commercial photography and studio portraits, amateur snapshots, found footage and B-roll that also show the Sutro Baths, Sutro Heights Park, and Playland at the Beach. This creates silent yet enthralling historic context for the Sutro District and also supports artifacts from the WNP, PARC, and Global Museum collections on display inside The Museum at The Cliff and nearby at The Lands End Lookout.

Join us at 5:30pm on Saturday, February 12, 2022 and enjoy this special installation with our extended WNP family. The Museum at The Cliff will be open late for viewing, and there will be refreshments to keep us warm.

Speaking of staying warm, please bring layers as the projected video will be experienced outside. Pandemic-appropriate masks and proof of vaccination will be required to visit The Museum. This event is free but donations are appreciated to keep our nonprofit going. Registration in advance is not mandatory but appreciated.
