BUY NOW Artists’ Reception:
An Exhibition of Auction 2009 Artwork
Featuring the Crème Brulee Cart

Saturday, October 10, 7-10 pm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Root Division presents a chance to see what the Art Auction fuss is all about! Come see the art we’ll be auctioning off at the event on October 22nd, including work by over 125 established and emerging local artists. The Artists’ Reception is free to attend and almost as fun as the ticketed event. We are thrilled to support the art of San Francisco’s burgeoning street food craze and welcome the now infamous Crème Brulee Cart. And in case you’d rather not have to bid against your best friend for your favorite piece of art, everything will be available for purchase during the Preview at 110% of the retail price. Can’t make it to either event? Check out our online Art Auction from October 11th through October 21st!

Root Division is an arts and arts education non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.

Root Division is supported in part by grants from Grants for the Arts: SF Hotel Tax Fund, The San Francisco Foundation, and the Walter & Elise Haas Fund. The Second Saturday Exhibition Series is sponsored by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, the San Francisco Arts Commission through a Cultural Equity Grant/Organizational Project Grant, and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
