In the Media Room is a collaboration between artist Lynn Marie Kirby and student Bartek Rost, where the artist’s video is in dialogue with the student’s painting.
The exhibitions address the the Bridge in a wide context, including as a metaphor for the bridging of communities. By presenting a combination of art organizations, art mediums, and artists of all ages, Catharine Clark Galley celebrates the Golden Gate Bridge’s anniversary in conjunction with International Orange exhibitions across the Bay Area. The show acknowledges the diversity of local communities and the transformative power such organizations have in making San Francisco a unique cultural center.
