    Sadie Barnette + Collector Membership

    One limited edition of Sadie Barnette’s beautiful "Untitled (Can) (color), 2019; metal flake on found can" + free admission for TWO to a full year of programs at The Lab. Barnette’s work deals in the currency of the real, in earthly acts of celebration and resistance, but is also tethered to the other-worldly, a speculative fiction, a galactic escape. As the artist says, “This is abstraction in service of everyday magic and survival in America.”

    Name the Executive Director

    For one year, the Executive Director of The Lab will be titled with the designation of your choosing. "Janitor of Capp Street" or "Curator of San Francisco's Wombat Army," for instance. With such power come great rewards: a private dinner and studio visits, and plenty of special treatment presumably relating to public relations problems. We’re up for it, are you?
