On Sunday, August 18th the Noonan Building Artists will be participating in Dogpatch's first Urban Air Market. The event will be held in the building on Pier 70 that formerly housed one of the City of San Francisco's tow yards and a police vehicle impound. Entrance to the event will be through what is normally a locked gate at 22nd and Illinois St. leading to a massive raw building on the waterfront. For the first time ever and for one day only, this will be a community gathering place for art, fashion, food, drinks, and music. Urban Air Market is a curated marketplace for sustainable design featuring 150 independent designers of men’s, women’s, and kid’s clothing, accessories, jewelry and home décor. Participating designers are selected based on their quality, originality, cleverness, and method of sustainability in design. The organizers say they are inspired by “green” designers who are pushing the direction of fashion where it should be going.
The Noonan Building Artists will be contributing by setting up a small self-curated gallery with representative works from a number of the Building's artists. NBA members will be at the gallery all day to get the word out about our group, and the part we play in the Dogpatch community, giving the community at large an opportunity to get acquainted with this group of painters, printmakers, and mixed media artists.
Again, the date is Sunday, August 18, from 11am to 6pm. Entrance is at the corner of 22nd Street and Illinois.
