They’ve been standing for 105 years, but the steeples at the former St. Joseph’s church in the South of Market area have been given renewed prominence in the San Francisco skyline — and a fresh coat of real gold leaf. Driving along Howard Street or coming into San Francisco on Highway 101, it’s hard to miss the glimmering steeples, which have become one of the most visible symbols of the transformation of the 1913 church. Since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989, the church has sat empty due to extensive seismic damage, until now. The building has undergone a years-long renovation that has piqued the curiosity of the neighborhood and the city. On a late September night, the steeples were further illuminated by the glow of spotlights as celebrity designer and host Ken Fulk revealed his latest project: the Saint Joseph’s Arts Society. Inside the church where religious statues once gazed out, papier-mache bear sculptures by the society’s first featured … [Read more...] about Ken Fulk reveals Saint Joseph’s Arts Society.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Helen Forbes Fields, a trustee at the Cleveland Museum of Art, said that she recently saw a guard turn away a young black man when he pushed open the North Lobby doors as the museum was about to close. Forbes Fields, who is black, said she feared that the abrupt tone in the guard's voice might have made the visitor feel unwanted. So she told the young man he would be welcome to come back the next day at 10 a.m. "I just wanted him to know that this is a place that's open for him and yes, the doors are closed now, but they certainly will be open for him the next day and the day after," she said, adding, "I felt I needed to say that at that moment." Forbes Fields described the incident as one example of why the museum needs the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan that it is formally announcing today. "We've got work to do," she said. Two years in the making, the plan outlines broad changes in how the museum will hire and train employees, buy goods and services … [Read more...] about Cleveland Museum of Art unveils first ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan’

The local art gallery and organization will celebrate its milestone with a new exhibit, “Encores: 40 Years of Artlink,” which opens today at the gallery in the Auer Center for Arts and Culture, 300 E. Main St. The exhibit features the work of 40 artists who have been influential in Artlink’s history. The organization also will hold a “birthday bash” from 7 to 10 p.m. Sept. 8 at the gallery. Back in the early 1970s, local emerging artists didn’t have anywhere to display their work and connect with audiences, said Maddie Miller, Artlink’s gallery coordinator. The Fort Wayne Museum of Art focused on exhibiting works of … [Read more...] about Artlink stays focused on its mission as it marks 40 years of serving the Fort Wayne art communityCOMMENTSLatest NewsNewsletter
