Drink beer, meet people, and hang out with friends at this weekly informal gathering hosted by Marioni, a pioneering Bay Area conceptual artist who has been regularly staging free beer salons as social artworks at his studio, in museums, and in alternative spaces since 1970. A sculptural installation related to Marioni's 1979 salon at SFMOMA is also on view on the fourth-floor in The Art of Participation.
