Like the iconic phenomenon it’s named after, FOG Design+Art rolled into San Francisco on January 14–17 at Fort Mason Center. In its third year, FOG has become one of the most preeminent design and art fairs and continues to grow in popularity and recognition. FOG showcased 43 exhibitors from around the world, a coffee lounge by JANE, pop-up dining by Cotogna and 21POP, featuring Stanlee Gatti’s installation “CUT IT OUT”, celebrating the art of handmade crafts. Over 8,000 people attended the fair including 1,500 at the Preview Gala benefitting the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Fair highlights included the Innovators Luncheon with honored guest Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, a lively panel on the Changing Face of San Francisco’s Art Scene, and a special screening of Peggy Guggenheim – Art Addict followed by a conversation with filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland.
