Highlights from 2017

Butterscotch

Live Performance

From being a strong female lead in a male-dominated field, to gay and biracial in the music industry, our 2017 musical performer truly embodies the theme of Question Everything. We were so excited to have this one woman vocal symphony and the first female beatboxing finalist from America’s Got Talent, Butterscotch.

Casa Castiglioni

Exhibition & Presentation

Conceived by the Castiglioni Foundation for the Abitami exhibition in Milan in 2011, and subsequently restaged in Rome, Mantova and Palermo, the show traveled for the first time to the US with the aim of recreating a living space where the creations of the Castiglioni brothers are available to the public in order to share in their design process, experience and use. This exhibit was brought to us by the Italian Consulate General in San Francisco and the SF Italian Cultural Institute.
