Artumnal Gathering 2010
November 20, 2010 @ 6:00 pm - November 21, 2010 @ 12:00 am
An evening of inspiring art, captivating entertainment, and tempting libations.
On November 20, 2010, the Black Rock Arts Foundation presented our third annual fundraising event at the Bently Reserve in downtown San Francisco.
Thank you to all who joined us for our annual celebration of the vital spirit and extraordinary artists that enrich us all!
Held at the magnificent Bently Reserve, BRAF’s fourth annual Artumnal Gathering was an exquisite evening of tempting libations, bountiful fare, engaging art, and lavish attire. Our guests enjoyed three elegant rooms, each overflowing with art and offering a stunning array of featured live performances including soaring aerial artistry, and music and DJ’s to dance the night away.
