Kick off your Memorial Day weekend in style by honoring noted Bay Area collector Rene di Rosa this Friday, May 27 at the ArtSFest 2005 Arts Expo Gala at the San Francisco Design Center. di Rosa, who has a wonderful habit of frequenting non-profit spaces and collecting emerging artists for his fantastic and fantastical preserve, will receive a lifetime achievement award. Aiming to bring together the Bay Area’s emerging visual and performing artists, ArtSFest will also present emerging arts awards to one Bay Area musician, performer, visual artist, filmmaker and an arts organization tonight in an event featuring over 40 visual artists and performances and an arts resource expo.
Now in its second year, ArtSFest showcases arts opportunities across the board, and across the Bay. http://www.artsfestsf.org">ArtSFest 2005 runs May 5 - 30.
