‘Punk rock finds you’: Destroy Art cofounder explains how Fallout SF is bringing the weirdos back

For decades, Bannam Place housed the art studio of Winston Smith, the legendary punk Surrealist artist best known for his work with San Francisco punk band the Dead Kennedys. On May 27, Smith celebrated his 70th birthday alongside the grand opening of Fallout SF, a punk community art space in his very own studio at 50-A Bannam Place. The space is run in collaboration with international punk management agency Destroy Art, led by artist-curator team Craig Vincent and Farida Mazlan.
