de Young Museum: The Summer of Love Experience - Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll
Comment by AB: Oodles of posters and photographs dominate the show, but there's also a gratifying array of art, rock & roll, video, memorabilia, light shows and other miscellaneous artifacts. But what made it for me was the fashion. Experience the era in all it's glory (and see a healthy dose of old hippies wandering the corridors as well, a number of them decked out in varying degrees of vintage regalia). Check it out.

de Young Museum: Stuart Davis - In Full Swing
Comment by AB: Stuart Davis blends jazz, dance, lingo, hepcat culture, products, commercialism, industry and more into his vibrant energized characterizations of America. Go see.

swissnex San Francisco: !Mediengruppe Bitnik - Desperate times call for desperate measures, lol
Comment by AB: Satirical installation based on the Ashley Madison hack and subsequent revelation that the large majority of the supposedly available women were bots, here reincarnated as "sexbots". Strike up a chat. Like it.

Merchants of Reality: Patricia Pauchnick - Subdivision
Comment by AB: Patricia Pauchnick goes to town on subdivisions and the land around them. Her embroidered aerial views make my day. Hope to see more from her in the future.
