7/24 - Show Closing/ Beer Garden/ Film Screening @SFAI

Water McBean at SFAI has one of the best closing reception ideas we've heard of for a great summer evening.

If you've been to the campus you know how amazing their roof terrace views are (pics). Well, for the closing of their group show Wrong's What I Do Best they are hosting a beer garden and will be screening the 1983 drama Tender Mercies... View the group show, drink some beer, enjoy the incredible views of the city and watch a classic film outside on their wonderful deck. Mark your calendar for July 24th and RSVP here. I think we may make this lil' Trippe's first art outing.
