San Francisco Arts Commission
For the third year in a row, the San Francisco Arts Commission is presenting one of the city's most unique art events: a DIY art collecting event bringing together celebrated Bay Area artists, and inviting the public to create a limited-edition artist's book by collecting original, artist-designed stamps in a custom edition Moleskine "passport" notebook.
The earthy color palette of historic buildings lining Van Ness is about to see a burst of bright colors. Acclaimed ceramic artist Jun Kaneko will unveil his two 6-foot heads on Wednesday, June 6 at 11 a.m. in front of the War Memorial Opera House. The sculpture installation coincides with the premiere of SF Opera's run of Mozart's The Magic Flute (June 13–July 8), for which Kaneko designed the set.
Exploratorium artist and exhibit developer (and featured artist at SFO's T2) Charles Sowers gives Corona Heights' Randall Museum a much-needed makeover. The 75-year-old art and sciences institution has been teaching children for decades, but there's no question that the design of its exterior was in need of some serious TLC.
The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery has created a unique fundraising event that may well develop into a new tradition for the city's fall arts season: a neighborhood art walk where you can mingle with with some of San Francisco's most notable established and emerging artists, explore local enclaves and businesses, and end up with a unique, collaborative art piece which you can contemplate over cocktails.
