FOG Design + Art

BY Damion Matthews - December 18, 2013


The first major cultural event to take place in San Francisco in 2014 is undoubtedly the FOG Design + Art fair, running from January 17th to 19th, 2014, with a preview gala on January 16th.

Benefiting the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), FOG Design + Art will feature more than 40 prominent twentieth-century and contemporary design dealers from the Bay Area and across the country; a selection of leading modern and contemporary art galleries; and “21POP”, a special pop-up shop created by Stanlee Gatti.

The design and art fair will also provide a dynamic lineup of lectures and interactive discussions with leaders in the design and art worlds, including figures such as Douglas Durkin, Roth Martin and Jessica Silverman.
