PFF MEMBER EVENTS
PFF performance artist Anthony Julius Williams will appear at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco on April 13th as part of A Night With The Stars: Dreaming In Color, a benefit gala for the Community Housing Partnership.

This annual event brings San Francisco together to enjoy wine, food, and performances! Help CHP celebrate their residents, all of whom have experienced homelessness, as they perform on the historic stage of the Herbst Theatre.

All performers are selected through an audition process and paired with local artists who mentor them through months of preparation and perform with them onstage. This year's theme will celebrate CHP's bold vision for the future.

Date: April 13 @ 5:30 pm
Artist: Anthony Julius Williams
Event: A Night With The Stars: Dreaming In Color

StoreFrontLab is pleased to host Malleable Monuments, an exhibition and event series highlighting the work and ideas of emerging architectural design practice, The Open Workshop. The exhibition presents design experiments that test how to empower the role of architecture within the evolving conditions of the city and its public and ecological contexts.
