local take

From their site: There's an enormous amount of talent in this beautiful city of ours and we wanted to create a space that celebrated the art that is created here, and the artists that make it. Some of it is San Francisco themed, some of it is not… but it’s all gorgeous, unique and made in the Bay Area.
