Triple Threat 

Wednesday, Nov 21 2012
Tonight boasts a triple header of amazing, free art shows. The first is the Annual Holiday Art Sale at Creativity Explored, where all original artwork is 30 percent off to celebrate the organization's 30th anniversary. The studio is filled with prints, paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, and textiles by over 130 artists with developmental disabilities, and like all of its exhibitions, half of the proceeds from each sale go directly to the artist. The second is "United in Hope," a mask and art exhibit by clients, staff, and community members of Clínica Esperanza, the HIV Services Clinic of the Mission Neighborhood Health Center, in commemoration of World AIDS Day. For two months prior to the event, MNHC invited people affected by HIV to participate in crafting masks that express their experience and their hopes for health and well-being for the future. Individual masks from the workshops and other art are displayed and accompanied by the artist's personal memoirs, and all funds raised go to support the mission of MNHC/Clínica Esperanza. The third is "SCRAP Art," the fourth creative reuse exhibition by local environmentally conscious art organization SCRAP, featuring Bay Area artists who use materials found at SCRAP. SCRAP has been diverting waste from landfills for use as art supplies for over 35 years, helping to reduce them by over 250 tons per year. The event includes a fashion show by artist Tuan Tran.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
