Schein & Schein features antique maps and prints

The students in the Graduate Fine Arts seminar Land Minds / Site Lines, taught by Jeanne C. Finley, took their first field trip of the semester exploring land/walking art. They visited 1435 Grant Avenue (formerly Dupont Street, known as the oldest street in San Francisco) in the North Beach neighborhood, home to the antique book and map retailer Schein & Schein, named after the husband-and-wife proprietors, Jimmie and Marti Schein.

"Rob and Jeff showed me traditional storyboarding techniques. . . . They really work!"

It's a story about a recent California College of the Arts graduate who scores an internship working with his former instructor, an Academy Award–winning filmmaker.
