Masterminds 2010 Finalists Named, Winners Announced Wed.

Posted By on Mon, Feb 15, 2010 at 12:00 PM

We received more than 100 submissions this year from local artists vying to be named a Mastermind (and, perhaps, get a $2,500 grant). The quality of the entries was truly inspiring. That's why we've named 12 finalists this year instead of the usual 10--read up on this 2010's picks below.

You can see their artwork in person at our Artopia event next Wednesday at Project One.  We'll name the three grant winners that night. Hope to see you there.

Her face is instantly recognizable to anyone who watched MTV News in the '80s and '90s, but Tabitha Soren has retired from journalism after a decade or so of globetrotting. She has not, however, stopped working. The Berkeley-based Soren has been seriously pursuing photography, with assignments from The New York Times Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and others, providing public displays of her portraits of people and places. Her primary subject? "Time," she said in a phone interview. Soren tends to find a subject, such as post-Katrina New Orleans, and keep returning to it.

  • 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.'"
