The event attracts some of the most celebrated creatives, dealers, and galleries from all over the West Coast. Get the chance to view the pieces on display and interact with the artist behind the work.
The 2018 FOG Design + Art will take place on January 11 to 14 at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. The festivities will begin with the Preview Gala on January 10, which gives attendees early access to the items, as well as the opportunity to buy before the event is opened to the public.
