Treasured Stories
Oral History Project

Filmmaker Ed Sabol once said, “Tell me a fact, and I'll learn. Tell me a truth, and I'll believe. But tell me a story, and it will live in my heart forever.” Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools in existence to share experiences. It should come as no surprise that living on Treasure Island is, indeed, a very unique experience, especially in this time of massive development and great change on the island. At this moment in the island’s evolution, Treasured Stories pulls together past and present residents, workers, and business owners to document and share their remarkable experiences of living or working on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. 

The Treasured Stories exhibit draws from oral history interviews conducted by One Treasure Island and showcases 14 portraits of project participants by San Francisco-based artist Bryce Albright. Each portrait provides a unique glimpse into the lived experiences of a Treasure Island resident or worker, with the aim to invoke curiosity, garner empathy, and foster community within exhibit visitors.

Portions of oral history recordings, accessible via QR code, accompany each portrait along with compelling quotations of interesting and uplifting accounts of island pride, radical inclusion, rewarding hardships, and whimsical moments from 1997 (when the island was decommissioned as a Naval Station) to the present.
