In conjunction with Fifty Years of Bay Area Art: The SECA Awards, we’ve restyled our weekly in-gallery talks with a superb lineup of past SECA Art awardees. Each Thursday at 6:30pm an artist talks about something on view. Last week, sculptor David Best (1977 SECA Art Award) talked about Joan Brown, and her painting Noel in the Kitchen:[audio:https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/sfmomaopenspace/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Best-on-Brown-Full-Audio.mp3]
David Best on Joan Brown’s Noel in the Kitchen, and in conversation with the audience.
David Best (1977 SECA Art Award) is well-known for his fantastic art cars and immense temporary temple constructions at Burning Man.
