6. Newsgathering

 Suzanne Scheuer | fresco | 10 feet by 10 feet
Suitably adjacent to the library panel, this extension of the printed word demonstrates the submission of a news item to a white-haired editor (art patron William Gerstle), to the process of printing it in the newspaper, to the final edition sold on the street in the hands of a newsboy. Though he hawks the San Francisco Gazette, which never existed, on the window ledge there is a replica of the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle.
