Upcoming Special Events & Fundraisers



Save the date for Root Division's spring fundraising event! We're reinventing this RD favorite as a hybrid virtual event that brings tasting, sipping, and a variety of sensory experiences into your home alongside the Spell of the Senses exhibition in the gallery. 

The event will include Virtual Studio Visits with our incredible cohort of emerging artists and a menu of interactive activities and performances. We're also featuring a silent auction of art, products, and gift certificates from over 80 local artists and businesses! Like our Annual Auction, we’ll still be installing artwork in the gallery for appointment viewings, but the “live” event and bidding will be virtual.

Root Division remains committed to supporting a diversity of artists at various stages of their careers. From $20 donations and bids on cookbooks and tastings to Host Level packages and purchases of sensory-inspired artevery level of support will make a vital impact this year! For general admission, all are welcome to join on a sliding scale, and we are building HOST, DELUXE, and VIP packages for a variety of ways to experience the event to the fullest and SIP and SENSE while we all still S.I.P. (Shelter in Place). 

Proceeds benefit local artists, free art classes for Bay Area youth, and the continued success of Root Division's unique model for keeping artists working in the heart of San Francisco.
