$20,000 toward an exhibition on the photographer with accompanying catalogue and related public programs, organized by museum director Douglas Nickel. Gutmann immigrated from Germany to the United States during the rise of the Nazi regime before ultimately settling in San Francisco in 1933. His photographs explore his fascination with various American oddities such as the proliferation of cars, oversized advertisements, and graffitti, and reflect his sensitivity to groups that stood on the periphery of American society.

Total: $20,000
