Every spring since 2000, a group of San Francisco's most passionate art collectors have opened their homes to share their exceptional collections with the public, and raise awareness for Enterprise for High School Students at the same time. From connoisseurs to cool hunters, every host is a vibrant part of the fabric of the Bay Area's visual art community.

Each collection is notable for its thoughtful and selective curation. Seeing these exquisite objects in person is only part of the experience; hearing the collectors' personal stories of the relationships they developed with the artists, gallerists and curators along the way brings the work to life.

Your donation includes:

-A visit to a private collection of your choosing.

-An invitation to the Private Collections post-party and silent auction immediately following with all participants.

Ticket sales benefit Enterprise for High School Students. Private Collections and The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show are Enterprise's two annual fundraising events. Both events make possible award-winning work of job placement, career exploration and skills development for San Francisco's youth.

For interviews and inquiries, please contact Sarah Montoro at 415.392.7600 x309 or email smontoro@ehss.org.
