Benefactor Dinner Series


Madrone + Madonna

Saturday, June 7, 2014


Owner/Collector/Artist: Michael Krouse

Artist & Writer Luminary: Paul Madonna


Join us in an intimate and eclectic setting All Over Coffee and cocktails at

ArtSpan’s next Benefactor Dinner.


San Francisco Chronicle’s award-winning weekly comic strip writer and artist, Paul Madonna, will be present as our special art luminary. Madonna’s well-known All Over Coffee pen and ink drawings have been published internationally in numerous books & magazines, exhibited in museums and galleries, and have been commissioned commercially for large-scale murals.

Dinner will be hosted by creator, collector, and art-venue owner, Michael Krouse inside his home and artist studio located above Madrone Art Bar. In addition to being the owner of one of the most popular night-time art venues in San Francisco, Krouse has been awarded grants from The Office of the Mayor, San Francisco, and the Bill Graham Foundation. 

Experience the collective salon-style art gallery in his home where each art piece has a story and meaning for Krouse from his 20 years in San Francisco. You will also enjoy the thrill of stepping foot into Krouse’s artist attic studio, where you will get a sneak peek of his next photomontage project. 

Come listen to the colorful history, join in the diverse conversation, and enjoy everything that happens all over dinner.
