From May 16 to 19, 2013 the third annual ArtPadSF will transform the Phoenix Hotel into a visual arts destination, with over 40 hotel rooms being taken over by galleries and curatorial projects. This year the boutique art fair, focused on emerging and contemporary art from the Bay Area and beyond, launches with an exclusive preview show benefiting the SECA Art Award. The evening will include food and drink specials from Chambers Restaurant and exciting poolside performances. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to support SECA and explore ArtPadSF!
Since 1967, SFMOMA and its art interest group Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA) has honored more than 70 Bay Area artists including D-L Alvarez, Tauba Auerbach, Kota Ezawa, Colter Jacobsen, Chris Johanson, Barry McGee, Mitzi Pederson, and Laurie Reid, among many others with this biennial award. ArtPadSF has partnered with SECA to support this important award program. This September the exhibition will feature off-site commissions by awardees Zarouhie Abdalian, Josh Faught, Jonn Herschend, and David Wilson.
