The Frontrunners show is a survey of new work from 23 talented artists of the competitive Jack and Gertrude Murphy Fellowships & the Edwin Anthony & Adelaine Bordeaux Cadogan Fellowships in the Fine Arts, administered by the San Francisco Foundation.

Highlights of the amazing works exhibited include the awe-inspiring a 23-foot-tall masking tape lamp post suspended inches above the ground by a set of giant red balloons, and tintype photographs produced in the trunk of an artist's car.
