Mavericks of the City by the Bay produced innovative art and spirited poetry---unique to the West Coast
In Northern California, new art and poetry was seen and heard in the coffee houses and bars in San Francisco’s North Beach. Occasionally, these avant-garde individuals opened cooperative galleries and staged their own events. Living and working in warehouses, storefronts or in old Victorians throughout the city, these spaces became another setting to show work, share ideas, socialize and produce art.
