    Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: Take This Hammer -Art + Media Activism from the Bay Area. Guest curated by Christian L. Frock; A Trap in Soft Division - Samara Golden.

    Artists: 3.9 Art Collective, Indira Allegra, Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, Bay Area Society for Art & Activism, Cat Brooks with Black Lives Matter and Anti Police-Terror Project, CultureStrike, Dignidad Rebelde, Leslie Dreyer, the Guantanamo Bay Museum of Art and History, MendeDesign, Tucker Nichols, Oree Originol, PERSIA featuring Daddie$ Pla$tik, Pitch Interactive, Adrienne Skye Roberts, Favianna Rodriguez, Ruby Mountain, Stamen, The Great Tortilla Conspiracy.

    Comment by AB: Artists weigh in on the course of social, political and technological events and their consequences here in the SF Bay Area and beyond. Not everyone is content to sit on their hands when things need to be said. While there, don't miss Samara Golden's exceptionally excellent upside-down adventures in interior decor. The logistics alone are more than enough to spin your mind. Everything's worth a visit here.

    CCA Wattis Institute: Void California, 1975-1989

    Comment by AB: The Punk Era in California was about much more than music. This show does an admirable job of demonstrating that. Artifacts on display include photographs, art, broadsides, newspapers, notebooks, tapes, film and more. Get a sense of what it meant to be immersed in the counterculture of the time.
