Whether you fancy yourself a maker, artist or craftsperson, or have two left thumbs when it comes to creative production, you can try something new alongside some of the Bay Area's most talented emerging artists. Join seven "makers" exhibiting in The San Francisco Foundation & SOMArts' Annual Murphy & Cadogan Contemporary Art Awards Exhibition for an free to attend afternoon of artist led creative workshops and live music.
Regardless of your skill level, you must bring to the worktable a sense of adventure– you'll find out your two workshop assignments (possibilities detailed below) when you arrive. They say orange is the color of creativity, so mimosas will be served by a cash bar.
Here's the full order of operations:
Step 1 (right now!): Register on EventBrite. Make yourself a note to arrive by 12pm on the day of the event to be guaranteed a schedule.
Step 2 (12pm): Check-in to the SOMArts lobby to receive your two workshop assignments, chosen at random. If your workshops don't appeal to you, do what you were never allowed to do in school: grab a drink & swap schedules socially with other students before the bell rings.
Step 3 (12:30pm): The bell rings for the first of two workshops. Each workshop lasts around 30 minutes.
Step 4 (2pm): Following a short break for socializing and refreshments, enjoy live music in the gallery and check out the art exhibition.
