A photo installation and exhibit by Bay Area photographer Joan Osato -- featuring a new photographic series inspired and realized through the artist's travels and travails, exploring our sense of place and displacement in the American West.

In Greek, the word Apocalypse means "lifting of the veil" or "revelation," and is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind.

The Apocalyptic Travelogue invites viewers to contemplate on the nature of destruction and beauty, and imagine their world in a post-apocalyptic future.

Also featuring installation works by David Craig, wood, mixed media sculptor based in San Francisco

Opening night program: Readings from Words in a New World curated by Michelle "Mush" Lee
Bay Area youth poets excavate, through language, a new world—one beyond good and evil, utopia and dystopia. They twist poems and stories into new forms and expressions of language, love, and survival. What emerges are words of startling vulnerability and unflinching courage -- chronicles of life after the Apocalypse.
