IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO THAT THE PHRASE “SUMMER OF LOVE” WAS USED IN A SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE ARTICLE TO REFER TO THE HAPPENINGS IN THE HAIGHT-ASHBURY DISTRICT THAT EVENTUALLY DREW NEARLY 100,000 YOUNG PEOPLE EAGER TO “TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP OUT.” A CITYWIDE CELEBRATION COMMEMORATING THE ANNIVERSARY IS UNDERWAY WITH A NUMBER OF TALKS, TOURS, ART EXHIBITS
Arc Gallery San Francisco "METROPOLIS" Opening April 22th 7-9pm : Matthew Frederick, Katja Leibenath, Lucky Rapp and Kenneth Sloan
A Metropolis is iconic. Is it the culture of the city or the monuments that define it? Or, are both working together to influence the ideals and lifestyles of the people who experience them?
Matthew Frederick, Katja Leibenath, Lucky Rapp, and Ken Sloan explore this theme in their new work. This collection of paintings play with everyday urban scenes, beloved icons and words. Ultimately, reminding us to savor our cities and look again at what we might take for granted in a new light.
