ART FOR AIDS - DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Good art writing makes good art better. Click Here.
Comment by AB: Over 170 exemplary works of art are auctioned off in this major fundraising event to benefit one of San Francisco's most important HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ mental health organizations, the UCSF Alliance Health Project. Supporters turn out by the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of $$$ are raised. Definitely worth attending.
The evenings's highlight is this Rex Ray masterwork auctioned in his honor.

SOMArts Gallery: Día de los Muertos
Comment by AB: The 16th annual installment of the Day of the Dead exhibition and the over 80 participating artists honor the lives and memories of those who have come before us. A number of this year's altars and installations take on a distinctly political tone, in particular addressing aspects of institutional racism and violence. Don't miss next year's. Always plenty to contemplate here.
