MCD in Dogpatch

"Dogpatch has perhaps cemented its artsy, cool reputation with the planned addition of its very own museum."

Heather Knight, City Insider, San Francisco Chronicle, Feb 28, 2012

Place Making: Installations at Hayes and Octavia

"For those who love artwork and alternative viewing practices, check out the gallery for the Trilux Pavilion for a taste of creative inspiration."

Meghan Young, Trendhunter Art & Design, Oct 17, 2011
READ MORE »

"Exploring ideas of transparency and impermanence in the temporary public space, Vogt says, 'Nothing exemplifies the transitional nature of the site more than the role of the fence that’s already in place. It has served to keep people out of a restricted parking lot. In its new incarnation, it contains the programming and space, inviting folks in to have an interactive experience.'"

Janos Gereben, SF Examiner, August 3, 2011
READ MORE »

“In some ways, knowing that the installations will exist only for a brief time makes them more beautiful, and this ephemeral exhibition is worth seeing before it vanishes, leaving nothing but an empty patch of pavement.”

Caroline Chen, SF Weekly, July 21, 2011
READ MORE »

"Another staid museum exhibit, you ask? No way. The MCD encourages audience participation with events to inaugurate each artist’s work, making for an opening of exciting and unpredictable proportions."

Daily Candy, July 15, 2011

Crafting Architecture: Concept, Sketch, Model

“Architectural and site models are skillfully executed. Yet the most intriguing models, as the curator intended, reveal the thought process of the designer and, sometimes, how they arrived at a chosen design after a process of elimination.”

Joanne Furio, The Architects Newspaper, May 23, 2011
READ MORE »

“Crafting Architecture works well in highlighting the importance of physical models in not only communicating design intentions to clients, but also in resolving and crafting complicated details which may otherwise be overlooked.”

Leila Bijan, Designtalks, March 25, 2011

Transference

"Imagine a room full of glass bowls that rotate slowly, each making hauntingly beautiful tones with not a performer in sight...'It’s exhilarating,' says San Francisco resident Brad Webster, who popped in to see the installation while he was out doing some Christmas shopping. 'I’ve never seen anything like it."

Cathy Bowman, SF Examiner, December 8, 2010

FourSite: 4 Artists | 4 Materials | 4 Sites

“Each installation in ‘FourSite’ is marked by the artist’s deep fascination with materials; all are attentive to craft and skilled with the media’s potential for subtlety.... The exhibit is a tribute to good design, showing how sometimes the most labor-intensive work can come off as light-handed as a specimen from nature.”

Kris Vagner, The Examiner, June 17, 2010

“Nice awareness of earthly issues displayed with style and ingenuity."

Chi Ha Paura

"The work in 'Designers on Jewelry' moves beyond jewelry as a status symbol, purely aesthetic object or attainable luxury. This is work where concept trumps materials."

Jennifer Modenessi, Contra Costa Times, January 19, 2010

"Along with being fun to look at, the exhibition makes plain contemporary fashion's often-elusive serious side with works that are just as focused on rich ideas as they are on outward-facing ornamentation."

SF Indie Fashion, January 18, 2010
READ MORE »

"As expected, I was astounded and blown away by the ornate displays of fine jewelry and art pieces throughout the small gallery."

Andrea Ramos, examiner.com, January 15, 2010
READ MORE »

"The exhibit shows the possibility of jewelry to be not only a piece of personal adornment but also a powerful mean of self-expression."

Ekaterina Levina, My Art Planet, March 3, 2010

San Francisco Graphic Design

"The SFMC D show inched toward proving that also celebrating the context, intent and process inevitably leads to more understanding and more and thus more appreciation. I look forward to more museum design shows slinking further down this path."

Eric Heiman, sfmoma.org, April 30, 2009
READ MORE »

"Here's your chance to reflect on the considerable influence that graphic design has on our everyday lives. The museum's packed, by the way, indicating the strength and vibrancy of the local graphic design community. Good show; go see."

Silver of the Stars

"[...] some of the pieces are really quite striking... Silversmithing is a centuries-old tradition in Scotland, bu the art is still widely practiced today, and 'Silver of the Stars' is intended to showcase the marriage of old techniques with modern design."
