"The cool grey city of love." — George Sterling

Revisit beauty through the fine art collection at Cavallo Point, which includes Imogen Cunningham, Gregory Colbert, Phil Borges and others.
Original Artwork in Guest Rooms and Suites
In our historic guest rooms and suites you’ll find nationally and internationally recognized contemporary artists working primarily in black and white photography. One or two artists are highlighted per guest room or suite. Each artist has worked with Edition 1 Studios to publish an artist monograph to accompany his or her work in the rooms. These monographs comprise the Cavallo Point Portfolio, a collection of 20 books featuring all participating guest-room photographers.
Artists include: Tom Baril, Linda Connor, Robert Dawson, Lukas Felzmann, Candace Plummer Gaudiani, James Henkel, Michael Kenna, Mark Klett, Wayne Levin, Arno Minkkinen, Chris McCaw and Camille Solyagua. The photography of Imogen Cunningham, one of the most significant photographers of the 20th century and a San Francisco native, is also featured in the historic rooms.
The contemporary guest rooms and suites also include a number of black and white photographs but focus on a collection of large-scale color photography. Both the architecture and dramatic landscape provide a perfect setting for more conceptually-based artwork. One artist is featured in each of these guest accommodations.
Artists include: Rick Chapman, Eirik Johnson, Ken Fandell, James Henkel, Charles LaBelle, Lisea Lyons, Amanda Marchand, Arno Minkkinen and Sangyon Joo.
The common areas of Cavallo Point showcase historic photographs of Fort Baker. Also featured are prized botanical specimens collected by naturalist John Muir that have been photographed by Stephen Joseph and documented by Bonnie Gisel. This special portfolio of 60 archival prints has been exclusively printed for Cavallo Point.
