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. Students searched through the drawers and bins and pulled out maps of particular interest.
