Shepard Fairey piece at YBCA
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts put on a lively opening reception yesterday in honor of the newest exhibit, “Through Future Eyes: The Endurance of Humanity.” Curated by YBCA’s Young Artists at Work program, the show featured a broad range of artists including Shepard Fairey, Chukes, Melissa Day, and Diego Rivera. The teenage curators drew a diverse crowd of artgoers, performing arts students, and a vivacious drum circle.
In between the festivities, we also caught a glimpse of “Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth.” We thought we had stepped into Monsters Inc: the elaborate costumes and quirky dance video inspired Martha Stewart-meets-Thriller type ideas in our heads. If you find yourself in The City, we recommend a stroll through YBCA.
