Artopia at Public Works gallery, and presented by SF weekly, brought together a number of artists from ranging mediums under one roof. The event was put together by SF Weekly to decide the finalists in their Masterminds contest: a collection of some of San Francisco’s art talent.

“Now in its fourth year, SF Weekly’s Artopia is continuing its efforts to spotlight Bay Area artists who deserve more attention. Vying for three $1,500 grants, more than 300 people — a record number — submitted entries.

Our judges looked at paintings, posters, films, sculptures, photographs, cards, calligraphy, books, dances, fashion designs, installations, and other artwork — all of which moved us in one way or another. Though it was difficult to make a decision, make one we did. For now, there are 10 finalists, each of whom wants to be the next artist to make it big.”
