NoCal | AT Local – First Thursday Coffee Break on Location: Music Concourse, Golden Gate Park

July 8 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

A Group Toasting with Coffee Cups
8:00am PST

All members of ArtTable’s Northern California Chapter are welcome to join us in the early morning of Thursday, July 8th, to share a cup of coffee before your workday gets started. Bring your own coffee, tea, and/or pastry and meet and catch up with other members during this first in-person outdoor coffee break together.

We will meet at the benches across the street from the DeYoung Museum, directly East of Monumental Reckoning, a public installation by artist and See Black Womxn co-founder Dana King. This work, unveiled on Juneteenth 2021, represents the first Africans stolen from their homeland and sold into chattel slavery in 1619. King’s installation consists of 350 ancestral sculptures that encircle the vacant plinth of the slaveholder Francis Scott Key, that was toppled by protesters on Juneteenth of 2020.
