Advice From My 80-Year-Old Self: Susan O'Malley 

When: Wed., Feb. 10, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: Free
Last Spring, the Bay Area lost a beloved creative force when Susan O’Malley died suddenly. O’Malley’s medium was positivity, which she expressed through public pep talks and other performances and bright, large-scale prints with earnest, inspirational phrases. Up until her death, she had been working on a project called Advice from My 80-Year-Old Self, for which she asked pedestrians of all ages “What advice would your eighty-year-old self give to the you of today?” O’Malley received phrases such as “Be you” and “Nothing will be what you expected,” and turned them into a collection of bold, colorful posters. Now, Chronicle Books has published the series as a beautifully printed art book that shares the project’s title. On February 10, there will be a release event for the book in the new San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries (401 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco), where many of O’Malley’s pieces are currently on view.
