This richly illustrated publication commemorating the golden anniversary of SECA (Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art) explores the history of SFMOMA's SECA award program for rising Bay Area artists and offers a broader look at the art interest group's activities. Features a lavish selection of color illustrations representing each of the SECA winners from 1967 through 2010 with a work or installation view from their award exhibition or presentation. Quotes about the work from artists, curators, journalists, and arts professionals further illuminate the story.

Original essays and highlight texts offer a look at the full range of events that SECA has supported including exhibitions, performances, film screenings, visiting critic panels, and artist talks.
