Art Auction to End Homelessness

Leave a comment

The Coalition on Homelessness has enlisted over a hundred Bay Area artists in the battle to end homelessness. These artists are backing the Coalition’s annual auction, Transforming Art into Action: Many Voices, One Community, which will feature more than 120 pieces of art for sale, musical performances and live art-making by local muralists and printmakers. This gala fundraising event for the Coalition on Homelessness will take place from 5:30pm to 10pm on Thursday September 8, 2011 at SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street in San Francisco.
Providing a snapshot of contemporary Bay Area art, the auction will highlight dozens of painters, sculptors, photographers and printmakers, including conceptual artist John Baldessari, renowned abstract painter Gregg Renfrow, printmaker Favianna Rodriguez, neo-pop stencil artist Scott Williams, and many others. Transforming Art into Action is the 11th annual auction sponsored by the Coalition, and it is our largest benefit celebration of the year with hundreds of expected attendees.
The event will also feature special musical performances by singer/songwriter Erica Benton and Golda Sargento, front woman of the indie rock band Golda and the Guns. Muralist Hugh Leeman will lead a live art, painting session, and the Great Tortilla Conspiracy will conduct on-site screen printing, using tortillas as a tongue-in-cheek canvas for their silk screened edible art. The $25 admission includes free food and drink provided by the California Culinary Academy, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
