Opening Reception: First Friday, April 4, 7pm-11pm

Twenty South Bay artists explore their views of shelter in a wide range of medium and installations. Curated by Alfred Preciado, the work takes a worldly yet often sublime view of the very universal concept of shelter, making political, cultural, issue oriented, poster-like, text, video, and other statements.

As always, the opening is part of South First Fridays Art Walk. Shelter continues through April 25 with special hours open throughout Silicon Valley Contemporary art fair hours.
