In Memoriam:  Artist Ann Chamberlain passed away April 18. A memorial celebration of Chamberlain’s life and work will be held at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), 800 Chestnut Street, on Sunday, April 27th, 2-4 p.m., to be followed by a reception. 

SFAI President Chris Bratton says:  “As both an artist and a teacher, Chamberlain was profoundly committed to the idea of community, especially to the proposition that art has the potential to redefine public space, and therefore, peoples’ very lives and histories.”
