I wanted to get some pictures up of BAN6’s Visual Arts Exhibition opening as soon as possible. With this much art and in such a large space, BAN 6 deserves repeat visits! I’ve been a huge fan of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for a long time so I highly recommend a visit, especially for BAN6. I’m returning to YBCA in the next couple of weeks so I can be intimate with the art (no, not like that, people). Geez. Seriously, folks, I’ll post more photos from the opening soon and a write-up is forthcoming. For those of you who were unable to make the Visual Arts Exhibition opening, you can check out the art during gallery hours.
