A few weeks ago, the Rockit Room crew invaded the fifth annual Artopia Masterminds art gallery display at Public Works. The event was orchestrated by SF Weekly, a San Francisco-based arts and entertainment magazine. The night started out slow, but as the masses made their way in, the slightly empty room started to feel more energetic.
Beautiful, minimally clothed women stood patiently near the entrance as artists painted their bodies. One model, who stared into the distance in extreme focus, was painted with the Blue Moon logo, while others sported body art for different sponsors.
Our first stop was the tequila bar. A wonderfully cheery man offered us a taste of several tequilas he was promoting. A bourbon station could be found directly to the right. After a few tastes, we decided to make our way upstairs and check out the art.
The art was amazing. Several different artists were featured and guests holding their cocktails crowded around to catch a glimpse. One of the most interesting collections used matted flowers as the negative space.
After a final glass of wine, we made our way past the DJ and dove back in the chilly San Francisco night.
