About Bay Area Now 6 at YBCA: Bay Area Now debuted in the summer of 1997 as a much needed platform for assessing the state of the visual arts in the San Francisco/Bay Area region, and to bring to the public's attention the work of exceptional artists active in the local art scene. Throughout the triennial's almost fifteen-year history it has continued to be the barometer of what is happening in the arts by placing new work into the limelight making it available to the general public. At each historical juncture, Bay Area Now has played a significant role in providing a platform, by marking the interplay between contemporary art and other innovative activities that have come to define the region.
