Test Your Balance at SOMArts' "Frontrunners" Exhibit

How many times have you visited a museum or gallery and used all your restraint not to touch the art? Well, at SOMArt's "Frontrunners" exhibit, you can finally get your fix … on one of the installations, at least. Test your equilibrium on Helene Schlumberger's single-person balancing platform (which might be tricky after a few drinks), or marvel at Michael Koehle's 23-foot-tall masking tape lamp post that's suspended in the air by a set of red balloons. The group exhibit showcases work by 23 Bay Area artists, cleverly coined "the frontrunners."
