San Francisco Art + FOG VIP Experience

It is with great excitement that we invite you to join our much-anticipated trip to San Francisco for Artful FOG Design+Art fair. Experience the city and its buzzing art scene as you never have before.  

While our art programming officially begins late morning of Thursday, January 18 for the opening of the fair, rooms are available from Wednesday, January 17. We suggest arriving on Wednesday to attend the optional evening VIP Gala Opening of FOG at Fort Mason. 

At FOG, under the guidance of our highly knowledgeable art educator and advisor, Andrea Feldman Falcione, we will explore the San Francisco contemporary art and design community. Over the next few days we will engage with leading and emerging artists, top gallerists, experienced curators, and preeminent collectors within the vibrant art community of San Francisco. Specifically, we will enjoy VIP access as we visit institutions such as the de Young Museum and SFMoMA; as well as galleries including Jessica Silverman, Fraenkel, Berggruen, and Anthony Meier; and group art spaces such as Minnesota Street Project in the revived Dogpatch district. All visits will be accompanied by leading art experts receiving us as a private group. We are also thrilled to provide very special visits of private collectors' homes otherwise closed to the public. Our hosts are champions of the San Francisco art scene and boast world class collections. 

Our cultural programming in San Francisco will be supplemented with excellent dining experiences at the city's best restaurants, including CotognaKokkari Estiatorio, Tartine Manufactury, and more.

The St. Regis San Francisco is a five-star hotel housed within the Williams Building - a 20th century landmark combining architectural bravura with modern refinement. The sophistocated location is home to the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) and is situated adjacent to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA), making this luxury hotel the ideal destination for art aficionados. The St. Regis San Francisco features exquisite works by acclaimed local artists that have been carefully curated to exemplify timeless elegance. Throughout the hotel, the collection references "Old World" charm in a contemporary "New World" fashion.
