This is not a rant about artists hounded by high rents leaving San Francisco. It’s a feel-good piece about thanking and honoring artists who, despite the challenges, continue to donate to a worthy, but never-ending, list of needy causes, all the while creating the flavor and character that defines the Bay Area. Please drop by the second annual Art Auction to Benefit the Artists, where the entire proceeds go directly to these artists who heighten and brighten our lives. You’ll like what you see and like how you feel.

Each jewel of a photo demonstrates how the gifted photographer used light and shadow to create a story in stillness with a gifted actor.

We've been meaning to go check out Arnold Newman: Masterclass at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco for a while now and are so glad we did.

REKA One just dropped a nice little ditty (actually a massive ditty) in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. The mural features his signature, swirling hot and cold color palette, bringing some much-needed energy to the block.

After showcasing a new direction with his show at Ruttowski in Cologne earlier this Fall, we can't wait to see the (partial) homecoming of the now LA-based Schoultz.
