Jay DeFeo's central role in the artistic culture of San Francisco over a period spanning four decades, from the 1950s through the 1980s, makes her both a figure of local pride and a lens onto the Bay Area's vibrant artistic communities. DeFeo scholars, collaborators, friends, and artists who have followed in her wake discuss her work and legacy.
