Bay Area art icon Lawrence Ferlinghetti reportedly got into painting a bit by accident while working on a doctorate in Paris. By the 1950s, however, the acclaimed poet, painter and cofounder of San Francisco’s beloved City Lights bookstore was creating surreal large-scale canvases, as well as writing his politically charged poetry. His work has been shown around the world, and at 95 years old, his list of distinguished achievements is a mile long. This week, his paintings and poetry come together in the new “Legends of the Bay Area” exhibit running until April 5, and opening with a reception on Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, 500 Palm Drive, Novato. 5pm. 415.506.0137.
