Anthony Meier Fine Arts: Kristen Morgin - My Best To You, Little Girl-Boy
Comment by AB: All I can say is Kristen Morgin's unfired painted markered inked clay sculptures are mind-bogglingly good. No matter how close you zoom in to inspect them, you still can't believe you're not looking at actual ratty old paperback books, record album covers, paper cups, comics, wood scraps, pencils, ripped stained cardboard, and similar detritus of life... that is until she takes one, flips it over and shows you what it looks like on the back. Special added bonus-- she's also got a really twisted sense of humor. Don't miss this show.

San Francisco General Hospital Foundation at AT&T Park: Hearts After Dark
Comment by AB: The Hearts in San Francisco project is one of The City's most visible and enduring fundraisers and demonstrates just one more way art contributes to the good of all. The year's hearts and their artists are honored at this annual bash held on the field at AT&T Park. An outstanding party for a great cause.
