I moved to San Francisco from New York in 2015, and SECA was my first step into the West Coast art world. I’d been very involved with the arts in New York and was looking for ways to connect with people here who were passionate about art. SECA has also served as an invaluable educational tool for learning about the local art scene and emerging West Coast artists and galleries.
With the opening of SFMOMA, Minnesota Street Projects, Gagosian Gallery, and other notable venues, there is incredible momentum building, and a growing public interest in collecting.
I love the Calder room and garden, as well as the Lichtensteins. I just love Roy Lichtenstein’s Portable Radio (1962), with the leather handle and metal binding.
