The Bowls Project: Secrets of the Apocalyptic Intimate FREE â€“ access Sculpture Court at 3rd and Mission Streets
Open during regular YBCA gallery hours
Installation extended to Oct 3!
This interactive sound sculpture/immersive performance installation is an international collaboration by visionary Bay Area composer, Jewlia Eisenberg, with her ensemble, Charming Hostess. An ecstatic investigation of sex, magic and secret desires, The Bowls Project is inspired by Babylonian Jewish womenâ€™s amulets known as “demon bowls.” Housed within a stunning double-vaulted masonry dome created by celebrated architect Michael Ramage and featuring videography by multi-media artist Shezad Dawood, The Bowls Project creates an intimate, powerful and satisfying intersection between the ancient and modern worlds. The dome is a private place to share secrets and public forum to hear live music on Thursdays, participate in rituals on Fridays and encounter embodied text on Sundays. Come and be welcome!

The First Polk Street Blues Festival in San Francisco
Saturday, Sep 25 10:00a to 6:00p
at Polk District, San Francisco, CA
For many years, San Francisco has been known for its love of the blues. Since our company already produces one of the nation’s largest free Jazz Festivals on Fillmore Street, it made complete sense to us and our client, the Polk District Merchants Association, to create a free Blues Festival on upper Polk Street. read more

Age Suitability: All Ages
For many years, San Francisco has been known for its love of the blues. Since our company already produces one of the nation’s largest free Jazz Festivals on Fillmore Street, it made complete sense to us and our client, the Polk District Merchants Association, to create a free Blues Festival on upper Polk Street.
If people are looking to escape the crowded downtown San Francisco chain stores and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, Polk Street is the place. Polk Street runs from Ghirardelli Square at Beach Street at the northern end, south to Market Street near City Hall and the Civic Center. Located on the west side of upscale Nob and Russian Hills, the neighborhood is in a San Francisco micro climate relatively immune to foul weather, especially during late September.
The Festival will feature two main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, gourmet food booths, a large family area, cafe seating areas, and much more. We expect the event will receive a huge amount of press since it is now the only free blues event in San Francisco.
Please join us and help us build this event into one of the best in the country.

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition works to transform San Francisco’s streets and neighborhoods into more livable and safe places by promoting the bicycle for everyday transportation through day-to-day advocacy, education, and working partnerships with government and community agencies. Our active 11,000 members represent San Franciscans of all ages, from all neighborhoods, who are working towards more safe, efficient, and green ways to move around our city. Because of our efforts, the number of residents biking for transportation has doubled in the past 10 years.
Current San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Members (to join, go to sfbike.org/join) are encouraged to volunteer at Tour de Fat by emailing Tessa Buckley, Membership & Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com.
The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council unites volunteers and agencies to plan, acquire, build, maintain, and promote a 550-mile ridgeline cycling, hikinig and equestrian trail around the Bay. When complete, the Bay Area Ridge Trail will connect over 75 parks and open spaces and serve the recreation needs of diverse communities, providing close-to-home recreation for all residents of the Bay Area. The Council works in close partnership with local governments, public agencies, nonprofit land trusts, and community members in the nine Bay Area counties to complete the Ridge Trail. Our collaborative work with these organizations helps preserve key upland natural environments and often accelerates the opening of trails on these lands for public enjoyment.
