barraganFor the dumbfounded readers who wouldn’t believe cremated human ashes could be transmuted into diamonds you are invited to check out proof at the SF Art Institute on Chesnut Street. Jill Magid’s “The Proposal” is a multi-media artwork detailing the legacy of the astonishing Mexican architect Luis Barragan and includes the 2-carat engagement ring created from his ashes. Runs through Dec.10 at the Walter and McBean Galleries. Free. Speaking of art, let me remind you of the most awesome upcoming exhibit, the Art Miami-Basel Fair at the San Mateo Event Center October 6-9. I am breaking my rule about not repeating events previously mentioned but this one has been annually amazing.
