Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason

The third annual San Francisco 20th Century Modernism Show & Sale (SF20) returns to Fort Mason this September. SF20 opens with a preview gala benefiting SFMOMA on September 16, hosted this year by honorary co-chairs Carla Emil and Rich Silverstein and event chairs Douglas Durkin, Stanlee Gatti, Katie Schwab, and Allison Speer. The preview features fabulous culinary creations and cocktails and presents a fantastic early buying opportunity for guests.

SF20 continues Friday through Sunday, September 17 through 19, featuring more than 35 of the most prominent 20th-century decorative and fine arts dealers from across the United States and Europe. Furniture, fine art, and design objects representing all design movements of the past century will be presented in dramatic room settings, creating the effect of a decorator's show house and a tribute to classic 20th-century design.
