This is one of the best things about the SF arts scene no matter how you feel about the politics of the way grants are given. A write-up of the gala on Monday from from the SF Chronicle. I happened to be in the building for an entirely different reason and saw many known faces in the crowd including Carey Perloff arriving several hours late.

Dispensing grants artfully, graciously for a quarter century

Wednesday, September 20, 2006

Every city has its heroes, both the prominent and unsung, whose particular skills, personality and convictions ensure that the arts truly do find the community they need instead of the corrosion that undermines them. Various local names come readily to mind -- San Francisco Symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas, philanthropists Warren Hellman and Dede Wilsey, the San Francisco Foundation's articulate arts advocate John Killacky.

And then there's Kary Schulman. For the past quarter century, no other person has meant more to the vitality of the arts in San Francisco, to the amplitude and richness of culture itself here, than this longtime and fondly cherished director of the city's Grants for the Arts program. In a feat of sustained and museum-quality finesse, Schulman has turned City Hall bureaucracy into her own kind of art form.
