Earlier this week Chief Connector Marti Grimminck had the pleasure of attending the opening of Taiwanese artist Hung Yi’s Fancy Animal Carnival at the San Francisco Civic Center with our new partners, The Curran Theatre.
During his opening address, Mayor Ed Lee stressed the importance of art and creativity to San Francisco and stated how important the arts are to innovation in the city.
"Art is an international language that more and more people appreciate because it brings us together… it keeps San Francisco at the cutting edge of innovation and artistic expression”
The Curran Theatre is an iconic home of culture and the arts in San Francisco and is currently undergoing a reconstruction. It is very exciting to work with owner Carole Shorenstein Hays and her team to bring the Curran Theatre to new audiences and make it a home for everyone in the city.
