The Bay Area has historically led conversations around neurodiverse artists. Three Bay Area progressive independent art centers – Creativity Explored, Creative Growth, and Nurturing Independence Through Artistic Development (NIAD) –  have expanded representation for developmentally disabled artists. This FOG Fair Panel Discussion with Amanda Eicher will convene contemporary artists and curators who work with and for these three organizations to celebrate the power of art to change lives.

Celebrating today’s most significant creatives and leading contributors to the worlds of design and visual arts, the fair assembles 45 leading international galleries; prominent 20th-century and contemporary design dealers; and a weekend of exciting programs.

FOG has become a focal point for the design and arts communities on the West Coast and further afield. The fair is synonymous with a uniquely pioneering spirit due to its bold hybrid approach and intimate presentation of art and design, dynamic programming on-site and its community-led mission to champion art and design in its historic Fort Mason setting. Building on FOG’s longstanding commitment to cultural institutions, the fair’s Preview Gala is honored to continue its crucial support of SFMOMA’s exhibitions and education programs. FOG represents a key moment in which the local and global community congregate to engage in critical dialogue, artistic exchanges, and a shared passion for creative pursuits.

In celebration of its inaugural year, FOG FOCUS is pleased to launch an artist-in-residence program. Oakland-based artist/educator José Figueroa will present his work in Pier 2, and will also move throughout the entirety of the fair, sketching visitors and the various goings on throughout the week. Documentation of his sketching on site at the fair will be presented alongside his work. Each artist-in-residence receives a stipend as well as support to create and install their work at the fair.
