Kirk Thompson’s strange and wonderful series, Square Wheels, is now on view in our side gallery. Kirk’s observations of cars and the other wheeled vehicles he finds on the streets perfectly reflect the Bay Area’s quirky environment. This mini-exhibit of local color will be shown until August 11.
BODY AWARENESS to open July 12
From saints to strippers, the iconic theme of the body, with its timeless desires and doubts, is explored in this exhibit of bold forms, soft beauty, and reflections on childhood and aging.
