2018 THEME – THE SUN, THE MOON, & THE STARS
Celestial Imagery in Art, Antiques & Design
Glittering, glowing, and geometrically powerful, celestial objects have been popular motifs in art, antiques, and design for centuries. Stars and constellations were named in ancient times for gods and animals they resembled. The sky humbles us and the celestial elements we see from earth have long been inspiration to artists and artisans.

Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture
Fort Mason Center is located in the beautiful Marina District, between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge on San Francisco Bay. The entrance to Fort Mason Center is at the intersection of Marina Boulevard and Buchanan Street. A former military base, this National Historic Landmark is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and, therefore, has no street address.
