Every year, as the holidays approach, we take some time to acknowledge the many local nonprofits that bestow varied gifts upon our community. Now in it's sixth year, San Francisco's Favorite Charity Contest, presented by PG&E and 7x7, asks you, our readers, to tell us which Bay Area do-gooders make this a better place to live. From human rights activists to environmental crusaders, we want to hear about the people and organizations you believe are making an impact. What are you waiting for? Get nominating!
21st Amendment Brewery and Magnolia Pub & Brewery have again teamed up for Belgian Beer Month.
Join 7x7 and San Francisco Ballet on Thursday, May 3 for our final “Thursdays at the Ballet” event of the season! The evening will include SF Ballet’s sparkling new production of Don Quixote, now featuring spectacular all-new scenery and costumes by Tony Award winning designer Martin Pakledinaz (whose design credentials also include SF Ballet’s iconic Nutcracker), plus an exclusive post-performance party in the Dress Circle Bar.
Your ticket includes a full evening of entertainment!
Local artists stepped up their game a few months ago for our Exquisite Corpse poster contest, and it was a heated battle to the end. The winner, who will get their artwork on a poster sold exclusively on 7x7.com, is Nina Asay, who created the whimsical painting Where Rain Comes From (pictured at left), a very apropos piece considering the storms about the lash our dear city, and a fantastic expansion on the original inspiration drawing by SF-based artist Eunice Moyle.
The exciting conclusion of our Exquisite Corpse game is almost here! Take in the entries for our final round, sent to us by an ever-talented batch of local artists, in response to Lorena Siminovich's adorable collage. On Wednesday we'll choose the overall winner, who will get their artwork put on a poster sold exclusively on 7x7.com.
Today marks the beginning of the final round of our Exquisite Corpse game! We've seen some amazing art come out of this challenging project, but it's not over yet. Take in this collage by local artist Lorena Siminovich and craft a response drawing to send to us at email@example.com by next Tuesday, December 28th. It must be a JPEG that's 500 width by 700 height at 72 dpi.
Round Three of our Exquisite Corpse game commences today! Feast your eyes on the painting above, an arresting portrait of a bison with rainbow lasers shooting out of its eyes, by SF-based fine artist Lisa Congdon. Submissions by all you local artists out there just keep getting better and better, but we still want to see what you've got! Stakes are high in this second-to-final round of the game.
Round Two of our Exquisite Corpse game concludes today, so if you creative types out there have any last minute response drawings to the trippy prism painting by Kelly Lynn Jones to send our way, get to it! Entries must be mailed as JPEGs (500 width by 700 height at 72 dpi) to firstname.lastname@example.org!
It's Wednesday, which means our Exquisite Corpse game continues with this very Pink Floydian piece of art by local artist Kelly Lynn Jones. Get your noggin in gear and craft a response drawing (here's the great stuff we received for the first round!) for a chance to win $140 in local gift certificates and your art might even wind up on a poster sold exclusively on 7x7.com!
