BOB MIZER: If you are in or near San Francisco, this exhibition looks great:
May 2, 2024: 920 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA Join us on Thursday, May 2, from 6-8 p.m. for the opening of Karlheinz Weinberger's exhibition, Outsiders Within. This will be the first survey of Weinberger's photographic works on the West Coast. Weinberger's photographs offer a unique window into the world of those daring to live authentically on the fringes. The show will run until August 31, 2024, with a Speaker Series event presented by Bruce Hackney @karlheinzweinberger2 on the world of Weinberger on June 21 at 7pm. Tickets for Bruce's talk are available online.
