5:30 p.m. | Thursday, October 2, 2008
Civitas Society met for a custom SPUR tour of the Contemporary Jewish Museum & the inaugural exhibition In the Beginning: Artists Respond to Genesis. The Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) recently opened its new facility as an adaptive reuse of the landmark 1907 Jessie Street Power Substation with an extension clad in vibrant blue steel panels. Under the creative direction of architect Daniel Libeskind, the CJM’s new facility represents one of the last pieces of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency’s plan to revitalize the Yerba Buena district.
