a “restructuring” at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts has moved the top directors of the departments right off the organizational chart. YBCA’s Chief Curator Renny Pritikin, who has been involved with the YBCA since its inception, is among the staff whose lives are opening to new opportunities. Pritikin, a respected writer and poet, came to the YBCA after many years at New Langton Arts. He led the creation of an eclectic visual arts program that has, in the past couple of years, gelled into a consistently provocative groove and charged up a new generation about visual art. No word yet on what’s next for Pritikin, but we hope something very, very good.
