SoEx needs you this weekend!

This Saturday is Optic Illusion, Southern Exposure‘s annual auction/fundraiser! Once again, the event is at SomArts Cultural Center, not at Southern Exposure, since SomArts has more space to party in.

Some of you may be attending, so I’ll see you there: link to info and tickets here. Link to the awesome art for sale here. (I donated this original ink drawing of Julio Morales and Aldo Sanchez from my 2006 “Inappropriate” project):
So for those of you who wanna support Southern Exposure by purchasing a picture of Julio touching Aldo’s face, now you know how.

Some of you may want to be part of supporting SoEx in another capacity.
I got this call for help from the good ladies of SoEx the other day:
they are in dire need of volunteers to help out

As someone who’s volunteered for gigs here and there, and who’s also been the beneficiary of the generosity of volunteers, as well, I’d really, really encourage you to give SoEx a helping hand this weekend. They are so deserving and so appreciative of any and all help that they receive. And they’re such a great organization to be involved with: if you can give ‘em a few hours of your time, please do.

Optic Illusion is their biggest fundraiser of the year and it’s the most fun time to get involved! There’s a live and silent auction, live music, DJs, food and drinks and all sorts of good times. All of the money raised at Optic Illusion goes directly to supporting Southern Exposure’s exhibition and artists in education programs.

There are a lot of different ways to help out.
Individual shifts can range from 2-6 hours.

Friday April 25:
They need volunteers anytime from 9:00 am – 10:00 pm
Saturday, April 26:
They need volunteers during the day starting at 10:00 am and the grand event on Saturday, at SOMARTS that evening
Sunday, April 27:
They need volunteers from Noon to 5:00 pm.

Tasks include installing art work, setting up for the event as well as bartending, serving food, cashiers, wrapping artwork and other general tasks during the auction. You will get a chance to meet over 165 artists who are participating in the auction as well as other collectors, educators and artists in your community.

For more information about times and tasks, email or call 415-863-2141.

Do it.
Do it!!!!!!
