The Making of an Art Auction

Community arts and education in SF

Root Division, the Mission District arts and arts education non-profit, is a vast network of makers, educators, curators, and artists. They’re holding an art auction later this month to help fund their programs, including their studios program that benefits emerging artists and their youth education program that provides free art classes throughout San Francisco schools. At the heart of each of their programs is community engagement.

The auction takes place on Thursday, October 25. Here’s more info from Root Division:

This fundraising event presents an eclectic mix of artwork from over 100 established and emerging local artists, food by Chef Anthony Myint of Mission Bowling Club, and cocktails by both Otis Lounge and Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem. Proceeds benefit local emerging artists, as well as Root Division’s free after school art classes for Bay Area youth. More info & tickets available online.
