MODERN EDEN

Painter Bradley Platz and his wife Kim Larson, who has a background in jewelry making and sculpture, originally opened Modern Eden in North Beach a couple blocks away from its current Greenwich street location and were told 4 years later that their rent would be doubling. Kim tells me, “We could have given up so easily; it would have been by far the easier decision but we did’t want to see another business, another gallery go under. It diminishes the whole city that we kind of fell in love with and it’s changing but we’re so stubborn to hold on to it.”
