C-NOTE Pop-Up Art Sale

Opening Night Party

Friday, November 9, 2018 from 7:00-9:00 PM


Join us to celebrate the opening of our C-NOTE Pop-Up Art Sale. This highly-anticipated event will offer attendees first-dibs on over 200 contemporary art pieces that will be available to the general public starting at noon on Saturday, November 10th. The C-NOTE sale offers collectors an opportunity to discover emerging artists and to purchase from a thoughtfully curated selection of their work for just $100, $200 and $300. (Limit one piece per guest during the opening night.)

As part of the evening’s activities, we’ve teamed up with local arts and culinary visionaries, “Vanguard Culture,” to create an immersive experience including small bites inspired by the featured artwork, executed by their Culinary Director Chef Daniella de la Puente. Enjoy a hosted bar complete with signature cocktails, wine and beer.

Internationally renowned photographer, Josue Castro from The Kitchen Project, will also be on site offering complimentary urban portraits. Bring a prop that means something to you or choose from an assortment of quirky accessories to complete the look for an iconic black-and-white portrait session.

Opening Night Party tickets are $75 per person, $35 for SDAI members, and complimentary for SDAI Circle level supporters. Ticket holders will also have access to a silent auction and additional interactive experiences at the nexus of art & technology.  

All proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction benefit SDAI. The non tax-deductible value of each ticket is $10.
