Event description

Description

At this Portrait Party we'll gather in small groups, and everyone will take a turn sitting for their group. The first round will be 1-minute poses, followed by a round of 10-minute poses. After that, if people are up for more, they can mingle into other groups.

Please be aware that artists work in a wide variety of styles from realistic to abstract, and at different skill levels. If it will make you uncomfortable to see no resemblance, or to see yourself older, alien, in unrealistic color—or in any other way not how you perceive yourself—then this party is not for you. On the other hand, if you’re curious and happy to be entertained by whatever other artists may come up with when looking at you, please join us!

Exchange of actual portraits is encouraged but not required. Another option is exchange of email addresses, and sending each other photos or scans of your portraits.

GETTING THERE
-Transit: Catch the #19 bus from Civic Center BART or the 22 or 55 from 16th Street Mission station. Catch the 10 or walk from the Caltrain station.
- Car: Parking should be fairly easy to find. Arch has some parking set aside for customers but if that's full check along Hooper Street or cruise around Potrero Hill.
- Bicycle: It's a nice ride from Embarcadero BART station along the waterfront past the ballpark and down the wide waterfront promenades on both sides of the Mission Creek channel. Near Arch, there are good bicycle lanes along Division, Townsend, 7th, 8th, 16th and 17th Streets. Bike racks in front of the store.
