San Francisco Mayor's Art Award

Monday was the Mayor's Art Award, honoring the lifetime achievements of Ruth Asawa, both in the arts and in public service. It was also to celebrate the San Francisco Arts Commission's Artist and Art Organization Awardees in 2006 - 2007. Laura Parker and myself received an award for our collaborative project Relative Connections.

Speakers included: Nancy Gonchar, Interim Director of Cultural Affairs; Maya Draisin, Arts Commission; California State Assemblymember Mark Leno; Supervisor Tom Ammiano; and, of course, Mayor Gavin Newsom presenting the award to Ruth Asawa.

But no time to shake hands with everyone, it was off to Bollywood 9, a charity bowling event against breast cancer, err, with saris. While I may never make it on the green, I discovered I've got potential as a bowler!
