STARTUP SF // APRIL 26 - APRIL 28, 2019
The Hotel del Sol // 3100 Webster St, San Francisco, CA 94123
Thank you to all the art lovers, culture seekers, art professionals, and merrymakers who came to see us April 26-28 at the Hotel del Sol. Your enthusiasm and support for the arts was amazing!
Over the course of three days, we saw a steady stream of highly engaged and notable patrons viewing work by 70+ artists who came from all over the country, plus exhibitions from our local Bay Area non-profit cultural partners, helping us all accomplish our mission to support independent artists.
Art collectors came out in force, purchasing artworks priced from $100 to $5,000 — with artists keeping 100% of their sales proceeds. Visitors were treated to several captivating installations and live performances and we hosted two full days of engaging Art Conversations with several notable panelists.
Thanks also to our amazing sponsors, including Wescover, Mozilla, Withers Worldwide, Cameron Hughes Wines, GT's Kombucha, Raff Distillerie, and Sava serving fabulous refreshments all weekend long!
Bypassing the traditional gallery system, stARTup connects hungry art buyers to highly curated up-and-coming artists. There, you will discover over 60 artists – selected by art world experts – who transform hotel rooms into individual exhibition spaces and offer their works for sale to art lovers of all levels.
stARTup SF takes place at the fun and funky Hotel del Sol, a 1950s motor lodge in the beautiful Marina District adjacent to the Bay, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge. stARTup is held the same weekend as the SF Art Market gallery fair at Fort Mason, which is within walking distance of the del Sol.
