    In a city like San Francisco, you find inspiration lurking around essentially every hilly curve. In fact, this town is so rife with creativity and noteworthy talent that our local art community might soon be sending spots like L.A. and NYC some stiff competition.

    So, naturally, we’re amped to shine the spotlight on 12 artists whose names you don’t see plastered on street-side banners and buses along every downtown street…yet. These are the underground makers influencing the budding S.F. contemporary-art scene from the ground up—and we think it's only right that you meet them all in a totally intimate way.
