on our own”

Contemporary Jewish Museum

Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg

Last year we worked closely with The Contemporary Jewish Museum on programs and events related to their 2013 summer Allen Ginsberg photography exhibition. The Beat Museum hosted a San Francisco walking and photography tour of Beat related sites throughout the city, and co-sponsored and participated on a panel presentation relating to the life and times of Allen Ginsberg.
