Welcome to the J. Michael Bishop Art Collection
The art collection at UCSF Mission Bay is named in honor of J. Michael Bishop, MD, Nobel Laureate (1989) and Emeritus UCSF Chancellor (1998-2009). By establishing a world-class public art program to coincide with the ongoing construction of the new campus, Dr. Bishop's purpose was "to create an environment that will be a credit and benefit to the entire community, a stimulating and pleasant place to work and visit, and a permanent legacy to the city."
The campus community and the public are invited to view artworks included in the collection on this website and to utilize the accompanying map to take a self-guided tour of the collection. A small collection of books about artists represented in the collection is available for viewing within the UCSF Library in the Rutter Campus Community Center.
