> DESCRIPTION

Joan Brown’s distinctive painting style was greatly influenced by San Francisco’s Beat scene in the 1950s and early 1960s. In her documentary San Francisco’s Wild History, filmmaker Mary Kerr chronicled the visual artists of the Beat era: Brown, Roy De Forest, Dimitri Grachis, Wally Hedrick, and others. Kerr will show clips, discuss this underground scene, and share her own personal impressions of Brown, whom Kerr met in 1963.

Lunchtime Lectures take place on the first Wednesday of the month at noon in the Charlotte Wendel Education Center. Visitors may bring lunch or purchase from Café Too.
