Last Weekend of Psychedelic Candy 

Evolved SF’s current exhibition, Psychedelic Candy, will run until July 17, featuring local artists like Susana Gomez. Swing by the studio at 3067 24th St. for funky colors, mind-bending patterns, and all the trippy mushrooms. 

“My art comes from exploring psychedelic women in the 1960s,” Gomez said of her three pieces, called Psychedelic Roller Derby. Her work combines “roller derby with a blend of seduction.” 

The Drawing Room photo exhibition

There will be an opening event for Elizabeth McMillan’s exhibit “In Passing: after the wildfires” on Saturday, July 10, at 3260 23rd St. McMillan incorporates motion blur into her photography to “capture the perfect moment in time” — in this case, the Santa Cruz mountains after last year’s fires.

This is McMillan’s first solo show in the U.S., having previously shown her work in Spain. From 4 to 5 p.m. she will discuss her unique artistic process and her journey recovering from a debilitating tremor. A reception will follow at 7 p.m.

Beyond the Mission 

If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, check out the Bayview Makers Kitchen, the newest addition to the Bayview neighborhood’s burgeoning Third Street Corridor. The new “coworking community hub” features local food vendors at 5698 3rd Street, which was previously vacant for more than three years. 

“The Bayview Makers Kitchen … will provide smaller food businesses with the opportunity to grow and make a profit without extremely high overhead,” said District 10 Supervisor and Board President Shamann Walton. Currently, five vendors are signed up, but the space can handle up to 10. In addition to conducting business, vendors will also host and teach community classes in the new space.  

Current “micro-businesses” include Nixta, a plant-based Salvadoran pupuseria, Bonjerk, an Asian jerky company, and The Vegan Hood Chefs, who make vegan soul food and American classics. 

The project came together through a collaboration between Walton, the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, Economic Development on Third, and local District 10 merchants. According to Walton, the Third Street Corridor’s vacancy rate has dropped from 30 percent to only 10 percent over the past year. 

If you’re feeling artsy and adventurous, you can make the trek to SFMoMA, where Diego Rivera’s Pan American Unity mural, which he painted in 1940 at a festival on Treasure Island, is on display for free. This was Rivera’s largest endeavor, which he painted in front of a live audience from a scaffold. Its symbols and imagery span North American geography and Aztec culture to the modern-day Bay Area. 

After some restorations, the mural made its way from its City College campus home to the first floor of the museum, where it will reside for the next couple years. For details on when to visit, visit the SFMoMA website
