A matter of perspective

The Mission is more than just a flat map.

We turn to artists to tell us truths about our world that others can’t. For instance, the new sense of perspective on the planet that folks have been known to gain after walking the paths of the Mission campus can’t really be captured on a flat map. Instead, the curvature of the Earth as rendered by Bay Area artist Bud Peen (with a nod to Saul Steinberg and his famed New Yorker cover) might be a better bet. While we can’t offer a full-size, fold-out version of A Bronco’s View of the World in these pages, there is in fact a poster-sized edition available. Order it online or call the SCU campus bookstore at 408-554-4356. —SBS
