Visitors can watch Level5 via live-streamed video at Hammer’s Billy Wilder Theater on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.
Teen Angst at Catherine lark Gallery
“High school’s full of phonies; all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy a goddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give a damn if the football team loses,” wrote J. D. Salinger in the seminal teen-angst classic, The Catcher in the Rye. Ten artists explore this theme with an exhibition at SF’s Catherine Clark Gallery called “Teen age: You Just Don’t Understand,” with an opening reception this Saturday, 3–6 p.m.
