SAN FRANCISCO BEATS
Sun., June 11 | 11 am - 1 pm
deYoung Museum, GG Park
There's more to the Beats' history in SF than North Beach. This ride focuses on important cultural sites in the Western Addition, including the artist-run gallery where Allen Ginsberg first read "Howl." In conjunction with the deYoung Museum's 2000 B.C.: The Bruce Conner Story, Part 1, historian Rebecca Solnit leads this tour, co-sponsored by the SFBC and deYoung Museum, drawing from her book, Secret Exhibition: Six California Artists of the Cold War Era and her forthcoming book, Hollow City: Gentrification and the Eviction of Culture. Free admission to the deYoung for people with bike helmets, 9:30 am - 10:30 am.
