'Choice' at Arc, Creativity Explored, Beth Van Hoesen at George Krevsky


There are a lot of good shows this week - several are wrapping up next week. But I decided to go with art that speaks to my feminism, my political activism and my memories of the Castro "back in the day" - the artists at Creativity Explored, the artists at Arc who have visualized aspects of women's reproductive rights and Beth Van Hoesen's portraits of the Castro's  drag queens, leather daddies, and  activists.
