It was Ladies’ Night earlier this week at the Exploratorium where this beloved science museum celebrated its 32nd Annual Awards Dinner.
Always a heady event stacked with tip-top scientific minds from near and far, this year specifically lauded the ladies of science with the theme, Women in Science: Inspiring Women in the Field.
Archivist Rick Prelinger is a keeper of treasures—and a San Francisco treasure himself. On Saturday, May 16 starting at 2pm, Rick will share gems from his film collection at the Exploratorium's McBean Theater as he takes his audience on a tour of the Lost Landscapes of San Francisco. Drawing from his collection of rare film, Rick constructs a San Francisco landscape unlike the San Francisco we know today using news reels, amateurs footage, and industrial film.
