San Francisco lost one of its treasures over the weekend. Carlos Villa was a artist, teacher and mentor to countless students in his 43 years at the San Francisco Art Institute. I was lucky enough to be his painting TA during my last year of grad school and was always amazed by his insight and generosity. He was an incredible creator, activist, and as most have commented in their refection of Villa, truly a beautiful spirit.
