About this Event:

Join Community Partners ArtSpan(link is external) & San Francisco Center for the Book for a Happy Hour Artist Mixer!

The evolution, function and form of the book is chronicled from early clay tablets to the invention of the printing press to the modern smartphone that now fits in your pocket. Since 1996, The San Francisco Center for the Book has proved to be a tactile oasis in an increasingly digital city, dedicated to teaching and creating the art of the book, and instilling that book will continue to live on.

Learn about SFCB with a video screening of Joshua Moore’s “The Center of a Book”, then take a virtual tour of our summer 2020 exhibition “Poetry Is Not A Luxury” with SFCB’s Exhibition Manager Jennie Hinchcliff. We’ll wrap up the evening with an interactive bookmaking activity that you can participate in from home — all you’ll need is an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper!

About ArtSpan Artist Mixers:

ArtSpan produces Artist Mixer events(link is external) throughout the year to give San Francisco artists a chance to meet, mingle, and make art with each other. Past events have included mixers at artist studios, a Crochet Jam at a cafe, a literary reading and sketchfest at a gallery, a figure drawing session in the Dogpatch, and much much more! All events are free for ArtSpan Mixers; non-members are asked to contribute a suggested $10-$20 donation.
