San Francisco is known for its infamous fog, Victorian architecture, hip culture, lefty politics, and breath-taking views. An upcoming one-day art exhibit and silent auction titledInsideOut SF brings together all of those attributes and more. Hosted by AIGA San Francisco chapter, the exhibition will feature more than 100 leading designers who have created posters with the same theme: San Francisco. These posters will be auctioned off to benefit AIGA’s programming, scholarships, and community events (see above image). Event is on November 12 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Terra Gallery, 511 Harrison Street.
