**CANCELLED** Art Talk - The Beat & the Hip: San Francisco Art 1950-1970

**CANCELLED** First Wednesday Art Talk – the art world of San Francisco’s Beatniks and Hippies

This face-to-face event is cancelled, however you can access the recorded slide lecture here.

San Francisco was a happening place at mid-century: big new ideas about music, poetry, life and love were all developing in what was then a small city.

Art, of course, was also in flux, and some uniquely Bay Area artists and styles challenged New York’s dominance of the American art scene.

Discover the work of David Park, Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo, Robert Arneson, and more as we explore the art world of San Francisco’s Beatniks and Hippies.

Independent Docent Speaker: Avril Angevine
