Grand Staircase, Carnegie Museum

Posted in Architecture, Oakland by Dr. Boli on January 27, 2014


The Grand Staircase is meant to be the main focal point of the museum, but the unsympathetic addition of the Scaife Galleries, with a new main entrance, makes the staircase something of a backwater. It’s still grand, however, even when overrun by the International. The murals are by John White Alexander.
