Farm:Table Art Auction and Parklet Benefit

From the Facebook Event:

Farm:Table, along with neighbors, local merchants, and beloved customers have conspired to bring more green space to the TL/ Lower Nob Hill/AKA the Tender Nob. With approval to develop a parklet in front of the café – our next goal is to raise money to build it out and fund the year-round maintenance.

The Art Auction will take place at Silverman Gallery and will be hosted by La Monistat SF Bay Guardian’s Best Drag Queen 2010.

We will proudly feature some very prominent artists, including this partial list:

Mario Lemos
Walter Logue
Erin McAdams
Erika Pahk
Jason Permenter
Parker Tilghman
Shawn Trudeau
Jamie Vasta

We appreciate their generous donations and invite all to participate in a night which promises to be an inspiring, thought-provoking, and exciting event!

Intent to reclaim public space usually occupied by cars – the parklet will soon be a destination for anyone in the neighborhood who wants to socialize, visit, or just park their bicycles and have a stroll.
