ArtAuction16: Transforming Art Into Action, September 15, 2016


The Coalition on Homelessness is pleased to invite you to Art Auction 16, Transforming Art into Action // Right to a Roof. The auction showcases the work of over 150 Bay Area artists in a show benefiting the work we do to end poverty and homelessness in San Francisco. Tom Temprano will be holding it down as our auctioneer for the live auction and there will be a silent auction as well.

Come enjoy complimentary dinner by Eshana Singh, exciting raffle prizes and an open bar. 

This year we will also be hearing live music from Mission Delirium! A love letter to your feet from the dance floor, Mission Delirium is an invitation to revel in pounding drums and facemelting brass. Let your hair down, get delirious and shake your ass. If it moves you, they’ll play it: Bollywood, Balkan, Brazilian, Ethiopian, Tango, Afro-pop, Middle Eastern, Salsa and more – all served with a unique twist of San Francisco. 

The Coalition on Homelessness is a grassroots social justice effort seeking to foster the active participation of homeless and formerly homeless San Franciscans in the struggle for economic and social justice.
