An artist's income doesn’t stretch far in San Francisco, where the median price to rent a single bedroom apartment is now at $3,400. A new KQED Arts series, "The Hustle," sheds light on how artists manage to live—and stay—in the pricey Bay Area. We'll hear about the series and talk with local artists about how they make ends meet, including a jazz musician who runs a startup fruit business, and an opera librettist who babysits to make rent.
