Exhibit Dates:

The shoreline of San Francisco Bay is a crucible where the human forces that work on land and water intersect with nature.

A surprising new view of that interaction is coming to the Bay Model Visitor Center, where beginning November 19, 2019 works by celebrated Canadian artist/photographer Bill Peters will be featured.

Including 21 images of the salt ponds, sloughs and wetlands of San Francisco Bay, When Water Dreams presents Peters’ large-scale color images shot from a helicopter from 2009 through July of this year.

The timeliness of the exhibition will be highlighted at the November 23 opening from 1 pm to 3 pm, when Dave Halsing, Executive Project Manager for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, will join Peters to give a talk about the state of this uniquely valuable resource. This is the largest wetlands restoration project on the west coast. Halsing will provide insights into this massive project, its meaning for the environment and the vitality of the entire San Francisco Bay.
