“Ways and Means” Exhibition Features Work by 24 Emerging Artists
938 Howard Street, San Francisco
April 18 - May 2, 2008

Opening Reception:
Friday April 18, 2008, 6-9pm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 10, 2008—"Ways and Means" (WAM) an exhibition featuring 24 emerging Bay Area artists, will be on view from April 18 to May 2, 2008, at 938 Howard Street, in San Francisco's South of Market area. Funding and production of "WAM" has been independently resourced by the group, almost all of whom are master's candidates at San Francisco Art Institute.

"Ways and Means" is one solution to the question: “How do emerging artists … emerge?” In this case, the answer lies with the artists themselves. The show is built from the ground up and centers on an idea of artist as medium. In this idea, the exhibition framework is the means by which the artists grease the wheels of their own emergence. "WAM" is a strategy of artistic passage.

Featured artists include:
