Thousands of young men rush from all over the world to San Francisco to try their hand at making a fortune. Most are between the ages of 18 and 30, most are unattached. They have risked it all to stake their claim, and with dreams of easy money, legendary saloons and loose women, they flock to the streets of San Francisco. They will change this place forever. In 2014, San Francisco is a city at the crossroads.
Julia Sackett is a San Francisco based artist who makes work about time, sentiment, and memory. She learned to love narrative history at Hampshire College, where she received a BA, and she learned to be an artist at the San Francisco Art Institute where she received her MFA. She has been a Root Division resident artist for the past two years.
