March horoscopes:

Could the Nefertiti Scan Be a Hoax — and Does that Matter?

Before you head home from work next Thursday, come join the Friends of the S.F. Maritime Museum Library for the March offering in our Captain Fred Klebingat Memorial Lecture Series -- Ship Portraits, by Friends board member James Shuttleworth. Thursday, March 17, 6 pm at the SF Maritime Museum Library, at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's Maritime Research Center, located on the third floor of Building E at Lower Fort Mason. SFPL.

Per the SF Chronicle, big name gallery comes to SF but there’s no word about what will happen to the galleries being misplaced

In a major move, prominent modern art dealers Larry Gagosian and John Berggruen are opening galleries side by side in old brick buildings across the street from the new Howard Street entrance to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Gagosian, an international name in modern and contemporary art, confirmed by phone that he has leased the storefront of Crown Point Press. Berggruen will take over a vacant space at the corner of Howard and Hawthorne streets, and will close his flagship gallery on Grant Avenue, which has anchored the downtown art district for 45 years.

Minnesota Street Project gallery space in the Dogpatch neighborhood opens and SFMOMA reopens at the end of April. Only four blocks from SF Muni and in a rather dodgy neighborhood. But oh well.. better than nothing.

Art and Politics:

A new exhibit of rare posters opens at the GLBT History Museum March 4. "Feminists to Feministas: Women of Color in Prints and Posters" contains 29 works of print art from the 1970s to today that visually trace the power of lesbians, bisexuals, and transwomen of color who rallied for sexual freedom and economic justice in the fight against racism, sexism, and imperialism. The exhibit runs through July 4 at the GLBT History Museum,

The distinctly political images defy conventional standards of femininity, speak out against legislative abuses that disproportionately affect communities of color,

CAAMFest Expands to Mission District: The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) launched CAAMFest with “Tyrus,” an intimate portrait of 105-year-old artist Tyrus Wong whose art has touched millions, most famously through Disney’s classic film, “Bambi." CAAMFest runs March 10-20, 2016. The 11-day festival is a celebration of film, music, food and digital media from the world’s most innovative Asian and Asian American artists. In addition to the Castro Theater, New People Cinema and New Parkway Theater (Oakland), CAAMFest is adding the Mission District’s Roxie Theater and Alamo Drafthouse to its slate of venues and neighborhoods.
