San Francisco's Other Famous Muralist 

Wednesday, Oct 6 2010
Bernard Baruch Zakheim (1896-1985) was among the best-known artists working in California in the mid-20th century. Zakheim emigrated from Poland to San Francisco in 1921 and remained here until his death, except for periods of study in Mexico City and Paris. He was an associate of Diego Rivera, and he earned his recognition primarily as a muralist – although his artwork covered a broad range, including portraiture, figure studies, and gut-wrenching depictions of the Holocaust. His works in the later part of his life employed vibrant colors that depicted a resurgence of life.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 17. Continues through Dec. 30, 2010

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
