ArtSpan Artist Reception - Hotel Adagio

Come help to celebrate Hotel Adagio's first Art-in-Neighborhoods Exhibition!  I will be one of 5 featured artists for this event.  Drink specials at the bar (yum yum) and more...! 

About the Art-in-Neighborhoods Program:

ArtSpan's Art-in-Neighborhoods program serves the city of San Francisco by connecting communities with local artists while activating spaces with vibrant, locally-made artwork.  ArtSpan partners with local businesses and building owners to bring art exhibitions and art events to businesses, dormant storefronts, and empty spaces for lease that seek artwork for their blank walls.  Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to display, promote, and sell their artwork in these diverse venues.  All aspects of the program allow otherwise unused walls, spaces, or properties to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts.

Exhibition: June 7th - August 8th

Opening Reception/Artist Mixer: Thursday, June 23rd 6-8pm
