SAN FRANCISCO --- We're really NOT trying to be negative here with posting so many stories of the city's art demise/ rapid changes, but man, the bad news keeps coming and coming. This time around another Mission gallery/ not-for-profit takes the hit as their landlord triples the rent... Let's hope they can find another space in the city sometime soon.

Root Division looses its space after landlord increased rent 3X

Root Division announces that it will lose its current space in the Mission District and will need to relocate in Summer 2014 <-- After residing at 3175 17th Street for more than nine years, Root Division was recently informed that its rental payments would nearly triple. Although disappointed that Root Division must vacate its long-term home, the organization's Executive Director, Michelle Mansour, maintains a positive stance, viewing this transition as "an opportunity to plan the development of a vital new, sustainable arts facilityā€¯ with an affordable long-term lease. -continue reading

San Francisco Artists, Galleries Displaced Amid Tech Boom

SAN FRANCISCO --- This morning's KQED Forum focused a portion of its show on the subject of artists in the city:

Soaring rents have hit art galleries in downtown San Francisco hard. Last month, several long-established Geary Street galleries were evicted to make way for a software firm. Meanwhile, individual artists are also struggling. As part of our Priced Out series on the high cost of living in the Bay Area, we look at how the local art world is coping.

As of this AM, it's not online yet, but soon you should be able to listen HERE.

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

Art is always a struggle, but this is getting ridiculous. Sure there are a lot of art schools here, but graduating students leave the city faster than you can say student loan. This drying up of young talented artists is dampening SF's dynamic art scene.

But hey, it's a city, and we know that cities are always in a state of flux... Guess the problem many are facing is, this is happening so fast and so violent. We can hear the "fabric" of the city tearing, and for the sake of San Francisco and it's future, better hope the tech industry isn't as speculative as the first DOT COM and any conceivable economic downslide not as painful... but no worries, the artists will come back and help rebuild any potential mess like they always do.

The L.I.S.A. Project NYC invites Pose MSK to paint a mural in Little Italy on the eve of his show at the VOLTA art fair.
This week Pose MSK, who is visiting New York City from Chicago to take part in the VOLTA art fair with Jonathan Levine Gallery, painted a mural in Little Italy with The L.I.S.A. Project NYC. Pose's work combines elements of signpainting, advertising, comic books and graffiti into collage-like pop-art compositions. The mural is located at 188 Lafayette, at the corner of Lafayette and Broome, and is the only mural Pose has running right now in Manhattan, although many New Yorkers may already be familiar with Pose's work since he painted at Houston and Bowery alongside Revok last year. -CONTINUE READING

In the Rapily Changing San Francisco Landscape...

I think I just puked in my mouth...

Maybe none of your friends have been forced out of their apartments, maybe your favorite bookstore is still standing (for now), maybe you can afford $13 drinks. But there will come a time when you reach your own priced-out moment, something that pushes you from "there's nothing we can do" to "we must do something!" For me, it's this:

Esta Noche to be replaced by a "New York style lounge featuring the best local House music DJ's in a... sexy den of wood, leather, red velvet, and glowing candles." Not to mention a "very competitive bottle service program." --continue reading
