FOG has become a focal point for the design and arts communities on the West Coast, and celebrates the pioneering spirit and community-minded nature of the Bay Area. Their mission is to create a platform for everyone to experience remarkable works of design and visual art from some of the most outstanding dealers of 20th-century and contemporary work.
