  • San Francisco’s Victorian and Edwardian Residential Architecture

    Monday, February 26, 2018

    In April 2017, James Dixon gave a dynamic, ritually informed talk at SHARP about post-1920 residential architecture in San Francisco. A practicing architect as well as an expert on architectural styles in the Bay Area, he provided both an architect’s understanding of the workmanship the styles called for and frank evaluations of them. When the evening was over, we had enjoyed a college-level seminar from a brilliant professor, minus the homework and exams. Dixon returns to SHARP to focus on Victorian and Edwardian residential architecture, explaining the most popular styles and their relationship to San Francisco’s history.


  • Meet Two SHARP Grantees – Sutro Stewards and Garden for the Environment

    As you may know, S.H.A.R.P. gave several grants to local organizations at the end of 2017.  Two of the recipients are Sutro Stewards and the Garden for the Environment.  Our March meeting will feature speakers from these groups to tell us about what their innovative organizations do and how we might take advantage of their services.
