In celebration of its 125th anniversary, San Francisco's de Young Museum is hosting a juried community art exhibition of submissions by artists who live in nine Bay Area counties.
I met one of the artists chosen for the exhibition, Lubov Ovtchinikova, in 2018 at the Internet Archive's Decentralized Web Summit. We struck up a conversation about why we were attending and I made a new friend who grew up speaking another language half way around the world but shared my deep respect for Kurt Vonnegut.
There is an attractive balance in Lubov's work that reflects her sense of harmony as a trained architect. But the lasting impact of this allure is grounded in her personal insights from an extraodinary life experience.
The de Young Open runs through January 3, 2021 and, with precautions, can be enjoyed in person. Anyone who is able to attend has a profound pleasure in store. All the more so if Lubov happens to be there too.
