Twenty-foot murals, drawings that span two rooms, installations that respond to the history of the space itself—such are the works in “Emerging Artists of the Bay Area,” the new exhibit at the Marin Museum of Modern Art. Artists Justine Frischmann, Al Grumet, Carl Heyward, Phillip Hua and Jennifer Kaufman are as varied in approach as they are in message, from found objects commenting on the human condition to imaginative musings on structure. “Emerging Artists of the Bay Area” opens March 8, with a reception at 5pm, and runs through April 13 at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, 500 Palm Drive, Novato. Wednesday—Friday, 11am—4pm; Saturday—Sunday, 11am—5pm. Free. 415.506.0137.
