Inspired by the dust bowl photographs of the Great Depression, Kirk Crippens photographed the home foreclosure crisis of 2008 and 2009; Stockton, CA, an epicenter of the foreclosure crisis, became his subject. As the project neared completion, he made it a priority to find creative and timely ways to take the photographs to the people.

As part of preparations for a grant proposal, he partnered from various nonprofit institutions including the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, the Sierra Club, and the Museum of the African Diaspora; this exhibition is an outgrowth of that collaboration.

Located on the top floor of the Artists Gallery, the Loft Gallery is an exhibition space devoted to artworks not typically found in the gallery’s rental inventory, such as installations, unframed works on paper, and wall and floor sculptures. Similar to a "project room," this space welcomes exploration and experimentation.
