As hopeful recipients of the Black Rock Arts Foundation Grants-to-Artists Program, Rebecca Anders, Yasmin Mawaz-Khan and Charles Gadeken are creating San Francisco Ocean Beach Fire Pits and here they are to tell you more about it:
The experience of building a fire at the ocean’s edge is as old as human time, and a much-beloved ritual on the San Francisco coastline. Ocean Beach Fire Pits are locally made sculptural fire pits made from cast concrete and designed to succeed in the harsh and extreme beach environment. Taking the form of Sea Stars and Fire Blooms these beautifully crafted, unique objects provide a valuable and accessible site of public interaction and connection. Already a success among the San Francisco community, the intentional welcoming aspect of the fire pits draw people together and encourage engagement between a diverse cross-section of beach visitors and the surrounding landscape.
So come and support them by attending this fundraiser so they can meet their goal and receive a matching grant from the Black Rock Arts Foundation.
The event features live music, blazing drinks, fire performances, special custom Fire Blooms wearables, and a chance for you to help these unstoppable women of the Fire Blooms crew meet a generous matching grant offer from the Black Rock Arts Foundation!
