Art Docent Talk, April 13: David Park – The Beat and the Hip @ Alameda Free Library, Main Branch
Apr 13 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

San Francisco was a happening place at midcentury: 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.

Come and discover the work of David Park as we explore the art world of San Francisco’s Beatniks and Hippies.
