SFMOMA in partnership with the Fisher Family (Gap, Inc. Owners)

One of the largest private collections of contemporary art will be on display, hopefully, by 2010-2011 through a partnership between SF MOMA and the Fisher Family (Owners of Gap, Inc.).

Lucas Price

Lucas Price, a.k.a. Cyclops, is a new star in the urban art world; this October 15-November 13 show marks Price’s ascension from a life on the streets to one of the UK’s bestselling artists from a graffiti background.

This image particularly "strikes a chord":

"Featuring the artist’s irreverent and often politically-loaded satire as well as visual commentary on society’s dark underbelly, this promises to be the most audacious debut show of the year."

a new artist....

RENT in San Francisco!!!!


Being the fact that I have seen this show six times live, I will be attending this at least once :)

RENT is the classic musical about love, friendship and community, and the seventh longest-running show in Broadway history. Now, RENT is coming to San Francisco in a new touring production starring original Broadway cast members Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp!

Over the course of its groundbreaking 12-year New York run, RENT transformed the definition of musical theater -- and changed Broadway forever. Set in NYC's East Village, RENT is a modern take on the classic Puccini opera, La Boheme. It tells the unforgettable story of a group of young artists learning to survive, falling in love, finding their voices and living for today.
