Fifth Annual Expo for the Artist & Musician

Sunday, April 25-Sunday, May 2


$2 donation -- no one turned away

----> Event Description <-----------------------------------------------

The Fifth Annual Expo for the Artist & Musician is not a career or business convention,
but rather a unique connection fair for the general public and the whole arts community.
Each year the Expo features 90+ arts organizations, service groups, galleries, studios,
schools and nonprofits of every stripe -- from ArtSpan to ZEUM.

The event is open to all members of the public, regardless of their professional or
artistic background. Attendees can browse the tables, meet the community, and make
professional, cultural and personal connections of all sorts. The Expo supports the arts
at the community level -- including working artists and musicians, patrons, hobbyists,
arts administrators, families, students, teachers, youth, fans, friends, audiences, and
just plain folks ... in other words, YOU.

The Expo is an exciting afternoon full of buzz, interaction and community building! You
can find a partner or collaborators, make a friend, get volunteers, connect with a venue,
sign up for classes, get involved with a local nonprofit, get a free CD critique from local
music pros, take any of a number of free workshops, and get an overview of the Bay
Area's thriving noncommercial arts community!

In celebration of our fifth anniversary, we are offering a host of FREE D.I.Y. workshops all
week long, at Cellspace and at venues around the city. Check 'em out and make the

CELL is at 18th St. @ Bryant St. Take the 22 Fillmore bus to Bryant, get off and walk up
to 18th St.; CELL is on your right. Or, ride your bike. 17th St. is better than 16th for

Lots of bike parking at CELL.
