Letting everyone know about a Local Artists' Collective 1 Week Pop-Up show. Funds going to the Homeless Population of SF affected by gentrification through Homeless Prenatal as the source of our funds raised. Reception is March 28th.

Art+ Drinks + food + music+ local charity:

Organized by two native San Franciscan young artists, Quetzal Maucci (an NYU graduate recently selected to be part of the NY Times Portfolio Review and featured in the NY Times Exposures Feature) and Layla Durrani (Skidmore Graduate double major Art and Art History), Born+Raised seeks to create a space to dialogue for the artists who grew up here and are watching the drastic shifts occurring in the city.

March 28th will be a night to celebrate those who are still here and experiencing the effects of gentrification as well as to honor the creativity and excitement of all San Franciscans. We are excited to create a space to come together and unite at a time when many spaces do not feel as open to those who grew up here or have been here for a prolonged amount of time. We hope the show will be an open dialogue with those who have moved here--we welcome everyone at our show. We see the artwork as creating a community of those who were raised in San Francisco proper and uniting those with a love of SF.

All the artists have grown up in the city. The show will feature mixed media artwork, paintings and sculptures from 8 local artists. The work will be hung at Flourish Studio SF (4th Floor US Bank Building). Admission is free but donations will be gladly welcomed to assist the population most overlooked in the waves of gentrification--our homeless residents. The show will remain up for one week and a percentage from work sold will be going to local charity that assists the homeless in addition to 100% of donations made at the show.

We will be speaking with AIDS Emergency Fund and have already confirmed with Homeless Prenatal and anticipate these organizations will be where our donations will be given to with their acceptance of our raised funds.
