stARTup Art Fair is pleased to present its fourth annual San Francisco edition to take place April 27 - April 29, 2017 at the Hotel Del Sol in the Marina District, transforming the hotel into a contemporary art experience.

The modern art fair turns over the classic mid-century motor lodge's rooms and grounds to 80  artists from around the country and across the state. Each year's Opening Night Party (Friday, April 27, 7-10pm) is open to all members of the public at the price of a General Admission ticket with proceeds benefiting one of the city's cornerstone arts nonprofits, Root Division.

This will be the eighth fair edition in a row that stARTup presents a roster of artists where women and woman-identified artists outweigh men in the exhibition lineup.
