Barry McGee @ BAM/PFA

When: Dec. 4-9 2012

This week is your last chance to see the major midcareer retrospective of the globally influential San Francisco–based artist Barry McGee!

Showcasing two decades of the artist’s compassionate and vivacious work, the exhibition includes rarely seen early etchings, constellations of vibrant op-art painted panels, animatronic taggers, and an entire street-corner bodega populated with goods and characters of the artist’s invention, along with many new projects. Taken together, what emerges is the energy of possibility, or, as one recent visitor put it,“it feels like a ride at a theme park, but an art ride."
