One and a half years after the passing of Virginia Kleker, this exhibition and book celebrates the life of a prolific artist who is sorely missed. Artists and writers from the Bay Area and beyond have provided an astonishing collection of projects, ideas and recollections of their time spent with Kleker. This month long exhibition will be accompanied by a launch of the book for one night only, proceeds of which will be used to create a scholarship fund in Kleker’s name.
