Spill of Words and Art Auction this Saturday
There’s a lot going on with regards to Art Gallery openings this month.
In line with that is the fantastic “Artists for Jane” event this upcoming Saturday.
Renowned slam artists Bao Phi, Shailja Patel, Jason Mateo, James Kass, Adriel Luis, and Aimee Suzara raise their voices in support of Jane Kim for School Board in this combination performance and art auction. There artists are National Poetry Slam and Def Poetry Jam artists. Works from local Bay Area photographers, graphic artists, painters as well as from Matt Gonzalez’s personal art collection will be on silent and live auction. More info on artists to come!
Special discount for youth and student volunteers. Email Students 4 Jane at: firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
If you have previously been curious re: Spoken Word events in SF, I highly recommend this event, regardless of your thoughts re: local politics. It should be an amazing evening of nacreous beauty in both lyric, song, and art. The art show/silent auction should be interesting as well since Matt Gonzalez, an insanely avid art collector, is donating several pieces from his personal collection. Who knows what you might be able to find.
Myself, I will be donating my Carwash Series Prints. Considering that the framing along cost $150+, we’re hoping to raise some good dollars for the campaign. Maybe this will give me a bit more confidence with some more of my photagraphy.
If you would like to donate art for the auction, or plan on attending: please let me know. It’ll be a delightful way to spend the evening with you.
