with art by our own Sidney Stretz!
Curated and hosted by Lauren Traetto and Evan Karp (Want to curate a show?)
We’re sort of famous for good (Litquake) shows. This is our 5th year and our 5th Litquake! Watch and/or read our first four:
- 2010, Lit Crawl @ Gestalt Haus
- 2011 @ San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers
- 2012 @ San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers
- 2013 @ San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers
This will be our 65th show, and the 58th issue of sparkle + blink. The first 150 people in attendance will receive a copy. Be there early; this show is in conjunction with ArtSpan & SOMArts, whose annual SF Open Studios and Day of the Dead exhibitions—showcasing the work of over 450 local artists—will be on view at SOMArts during the event. Come check it out!
