About the Exhibit
As the daughter of members of the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition, Juana’s life spanned from the early days of the San Francisco Presidio, to California statehood, to the building of Stanford University near her final home in Mayfleld, now part of Palo Alto. The exhibition promises to elicit intergenerational conversations about California’s roots and will include pieces produced by local high school students originating from an intensive two-week Summer Workshop focused on creating exhibit works for the exhibition.
