5 Best Things to do This Week

Hand-picked events and happenings you won't want to miss.



 

1. FAULTline 2.0 Art Show

Timbuk2, in partnership with FAULTline 2.0, recently opened a pop up gallery inside a transformed portion of the Timbuk2 factory. Curated by Jennifer Wechsler of FAULTline 2.0, the temporary art show features work by California artists that live and create on the earthquake fault that threads its way through our lives and our state. Visitors will find many installations including paintings, ceramics, photography, sculptures, light installations, street art, and textiles made by notable local artists including Clare Rojas, Dave Eggers, Jenny Sharaf and Yarrow Slaps among others. Exhibition runs through March 24.

 

 

2. Free Family Day SFMOMA 

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art welcomes families and intergenerational audiences to the museum for its Free Family Day on Sunday, March 10. While the museum is always free for visitors 18 and younger, on Free Family Day, it is also free for up to two adults accompanying each visitor 18 and younger. Tickets are available on-site only the day of the event, are first-come-first-served, and cannot be purchased in advance.

 

 

3. Second Fridays Art Walk San Rafael

Art walks rarely disappoint. Not only to you get to check out cool (often local) art, there’s generally live music, pop-up restaurants or food trucks, plus you also get to go out with friends and meet new people, and wine. Lots of wine that’s often free. Even if it wasn’t for all those aforementioned features, the highlights of this Friday’s are not to be missed. Aside from Underground Gallery and Art Works Downtown there’s at least 10 other galleries and businesses participating in the event ensuring something for everyone –– better than ordering food at home in the very least. Don’t forget about the wine.

 

 

4. CatVideoFest

Celebrity is strange concept and one that’s relative, i.e.; don’t ask me to identify any of the SF Giants. And in this country, people earn celebrity status in a number of ways –– by being in movies or TV shows, by having a successful YouTube video, or by simply being wealthy. Then there’s a whole other realm of celebrities, pet celebrities. From Grumpy Cat to Marnie the Dog, celebrity pets have some of the largest followings, garner the most attention and command real $$. And let’s face it, their videos are endlessly amusing. Looking for the cream of the crop of said videos? The Smith Rafael Film Center is pleased to bring CatVideoFest to the Rafael in its all-new edition. Culled from countless hours of unique submissions, internet powerhouses, music videos and home movies, this festival of photogenic felines provides a joyous communal experience and also raises money for cats in need. What better way for us humans to come together than by watching cats? The program approximately 80 minutes long, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Butte County Humane Society and the Marin Humane Society.
