WHEN: Friday, Sept. 30, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. WHERE: Children’s Fairyland TIX: General Admission tickets are $30 (beer and wine included). Adults only (21+)
WHAT: Adult art lovers are invited to enjoy a magical evening at the park as 50 local artists create Fairyland-inspired artwork. At the end of the evening, guests will have a chance to buy the artwork for $50 at a live art sale in Aesop’s Theater. It’s a raucous and competitive good time.
Fairyland opened in 1950, five years before Disneyland, and it’s been a regional favorite ever since. Walt Disney himself visited the park and found inspiration there for his own famed family attraction. Children’s Fairyland has been non-profit since 1994. Proceeds from Drawn Together will support the people, programs, and spaces that make Children’s Fairyland magic possible all year long.

Helvella Art in Oakland, CA presents “Mushi Mushi”, a mushroom themed exhibition featuring 30+ artists celebrating the glorious world of mushrooms. The gallery name Helvella is taken from a genus of mushrooms that is endemic here in California, and they draw a lot of inspiration from the spunky, indomitable and magical spirit of mushrooms.

I had so much fun at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Soapbox Derby event at McLaren Park in San Francisco on Sunday, 4/10. Many (57) amazing derby cars made by local Bay Area artists competed for trophies made by local artists. Thanks to my awesome pit crew Mary Kalin-Casey, John C. Rogers, Stephanie Silk, Brett Durrett, and Tangee Boyce! And of course all the awesome SFMOMA folks and volunteers who made it all come together. Thanks to my friends who came out to show support as well. I was so surprised and happy to get the Fastest Car trophy made by the legendary Wanxin Zhang!!
