Release date: February 27, 2003
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) Artists Gallery presents its tenth annual Artists Warehouse Sale from May 7 through 11, 2003, at Fort Mason Center, Building A. Consistently one of the year's most anticipated art events and annual fund-raisers, this benefit sale includes a variety of works created by more than 350 invited West Coast artists, including Inez Storer, Mike Henderson, Terry Hoff, Leo Bersamina and Claire Cotts. All artworks, some of which have been made especially for this event, will be offered at 50 percent off the normal retail price. This year a bounty of exceptional work is expected from the artists' donations.
Proceeds from the Artists Warehouse Sale support the SFMOMA Artists Gallery's exhibition program, which promotes regional art, SFMOMA and the artists themselves. A festive grand opening reception, complete with refreshments and live music, will kick off the sale on Wednesday, May 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. During the week of the sale, the gallery will offer special extended hours:
|Wednesday, May 7||6–9 p.m. (opening and reception)|
