Thanks to everyone who came out to the preview of Hung Liu and Michael McClure's Deer Boy at Rena Bransten Gallery last night. As Era Farnsworth commented, it was a historic moment, as two local luminaries came together to celebrate a gorgeous and heartfelt collaboration.
McClure gave a powerful reading of his eponymous poem to a crowd that included local artists such as Don Ed Hardy, Andrea Way, and Carol Ladewig.
Prints and sculptures by Ruth Asawa hanging in the gallery provided a reminder of the rich history of the Bay Area's art scene; one felt that Asawa was there in spirit, giving the event her blessing.
Below, pictures and video clips from the preview by Nick Stone:
More pictures coming tomorrow!
