Beat By The Bay - SF Artists from the 50's

Wally Hedrick, Courtesy Jerry Burchard Estate, c. 1957

Beat by the Bay:
SF Artists & Galleries of the Fifties
Curated by John Held, Jr.

Less publicized then the Beat poet and writers (Ginsberg, Kerouac, Burroughs, McClure, et al), the visual artists of the time assumed an important role in promoting an alternative vision of society influencing successive generations. The Ever Gold exhibition reintroduces their work to a contemporary audience, who can find much to admire in the lifestyles of struggling Beat artists and the gallery structures they erected for mutual encouragement.
