    This exclusive, guided tour of contemporary art will begin at the Minnesota Street Project, a three warehouse complex dedicated to educating the public through exhibitions, galleries and programs. Led by collector, traveler and art historian, Rhoda Becker, participants will have access to galleries, meet owners and collectors, speak with artists and get an insider’s perspective on this vibrant contemporary art community. Our guide will have previewed the most current exhibits and created a varied itinerary showcasing current artists and works. They recommend allowing three hours to view all galleries and visit with creatives.

    Nearby cafes are available for lunch and refreshments or bring your own and eat in the nearby park.

    The Minnesota Street Project is in Dogpatch which is the new epicenter of innovation, craft and artistic expression. The Museum of Craft and Design, California College of the Arts, San Francisco Center for the Book, entrepreneurial ventures and various art spaces make this an internationally recognized art destination. After the tour, people may want to explore this vibrant area.

    Join us for the Exclusive Tapas Making Class with our Exclusive Tapas Chef Chris Kenber, Saturday, July 20, 2024 starting at 10:00 am & ending at 3:00 pm.

    What an experience this will be for us!  We will meet at Judy Hardardt’s condo in Davis where we will have the chance to not just learn about Tapas but also how to make them.  This will be a “hands-on” experience led by master chef Chris Kenber.  The class will be followed by lunch including the tapas we’ll have made.  By the end of the day, we’ll be going home with freshly made souvenirs.  What more could we possibly ask for other than a pitcher full of Sangria freshly-made (non-alcoholic) to go with our Tapas?  Come hungry!
